That sounds like it might be a Ron Trueman-Border song, though the title's a bit wordy. Can't get hold of him right now. Suzi if you pick up on this can you help?

There's a video of Ron Trueman-Border singing Union Street in the Rain on YouTube.

Yes Sugwash, that is where I seen and heard it for the first time. I guess I'll have to watch and pause, watch and pause and write down the lyrics.

Here's my transcription from the video at YouTube. The parts in boldface are highly doubtful.

UNION STREET IN THE RAIN
Ron Trueman-Border

1. Saturday evening outside the town hall,
Watching the traffic, a clock on the wall,
She said she'd meet me but I'm waiting in vain
Here on Union Street in the rain.

2. Out of the shadows and into the night,
A stranger comes stealing and asks for a light,
His eyes red from crying, reflecting the flame,
Here on Union Street in the rain.

BRIDGE 1: I know this place like the back of my hand:
The wastelands are ravaged(?), the pita(?) bus stand.
They say things are changing but it's always the same
Here on Union Street in the rain.

3. Under the bridge, kids on the sly,
By the troopers(?) they see it in words six feet high,
Day-Glo reminders that life's just a game
Here on Union Street in the rain

4. Young lovers and mothers a long way from home
Whisper dark secrets to friends on the phone,
Telling tears for their left(?) and their sorrows for shame
Here on Union Street in the rain.

BRIDGE 2: I know this place like the back of my hand:
The wasteland's a river(?), the old Cinema Grand.
They say things are changing but it's always the same
Here on Union Street in the rain.

5. Midnight the bell chimes, and everything stops
And in the moment of silence the last penny drops.
Now I realize I waited a lifetime in vain
Here on Union Street in the rain.
Here on Union Street in the rain.

Girl Friday, is it possible to share Jim Dixon thread with Ron so he could correct what Jim may have got incorrect? Just a thought.

Sure. Ron probably hasn't time to join Mudcat, as he's always gigging somewhere, but I'll email this link to him.

Here are Ron's corrections to the posted words. He says "Bloody good try considering his mumbling."
V1..reflect in the flame

Bridge1:...the wastelands, the rivers, the beat-up bus stands

v3...write the truth as they see it in words etc

v4...trading tears for their laughter, their sorrows for shame

bridge 2....the wastelands, the rivers

v5....AT midnight
