In the ghost town
Inside of my heart
All the downtown
Is parking lots
At the drug store
At 9th & Payne
They stock the bitter pills
They say
Will we see you again next Tuesday?
What more can we do for you, Mr Johnson, sir?
Pass the word around them Golden Pools
I've been elected King of the Fools

At the barber shop
They never close
They'll cut your hair
They'll shine your suit
Ya look fine, mistah
Ya look sharp
We can tell how well you play the part!
Pass the word around them Golden Pools
I've been elected King of the Fools
In the ghost town
Inside of my heart
All the downtown
Is parking lots
And in the rain the streets are on fire...

At the city hall the mayor gives away the key
He says
Look around
Make yourself at home
Everything we do for you is our pleasure!
Pass the word around them Golden Pools
I've been elected King of the Fools
In the ghost town
Inside of my heart
All your downtown
Is parking lots
