Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sunday Street (Dave Van Ronk)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: fishing blues and sunday street
The "Sunday Street" that Pene Azul posted links to isn't the same song that Dave Van Ronk recorded.

Gonna be livin' on chicken an' wine.
I want caviar, four-star, Johnnie Walker Black,
Six pretty women in my gold Cadillac.
I wanta move where the livin' is ...
