I wish I was driving in a Chevy Impala
(on the ) shores of the big lake
Counting down my lines
Drive all the highways
Road to the shoreline
Big lake never tires
It just beats against my mind
Here comes the big sun
It's coming down my street
Last days of summer
Roll down the skyway
Where are you going I said
I’m going down to the big lake
I took my true love down to the t.h. & b. line
Gonna lay her right down and ease the trouble off my mind
I took my true love down to the cold steel rail
Where my blood runs wild like a hobo trail
Chorus
Well I see you're alive
On the street where we learned
And the steel is still fired
And the smoke stacks remain
On the shores of the big lake
Chorus
Will I see you back in steeltown?
On the shores of the big lake
Watch the flames burn up the night sky
On the shores of the big lake
From Niagara escarpment
To the shores of the big lake
Will I see you down in steeltown?
On the shores of the big lake
