First time poster, long time follower. Searching for full lyrics for a tune I heard in the 1990s in New England folk scene. Can't be sure whether it's older than that or was passed around to the artists I was hearing, but I also can't recall who I heard sing it. Melody has stuck with me for years. Anyone know it?
You were walking down Main Street dressed up for the kill
Time hadn't changed you, time never will
I almost stepped up when you stopped for the light
But something inside me said it just wasn't right.
So I walked away like I did long ago
Without looking over my shoulder
No words of greeting, no kind face to show.
Just feeling a little bit older.
