I've been down
I've been down too far to care
I keep getting in my car
But I'm not going anywhere

And I've been had
Well at least that's how it looks
And it's not funny like on TV
And it's not smart like it is in books

And I wonder yeah I wonder how the world keeps spinnin' 'round
Where's a boy with bad intentions gonna settle down?

And I don't know what you've been told
The streets of where I'm from
Are paved with hearts instead of gold
Yeah, the streets of where I'm from
Are paved with hearts instead of gold

I recall
When I was twenty-three
Wondering how anyone
Could fall in love with me

But now I'm old
Hell I'm well past twenty-five
And I can't seem to fall in love
No matter how I try

And I wonder where I'll wind up but I'm headed west I know
Wind my way through Texas and into New Mexico

And I don't know what you've been told
The streets of where I'm from
Are paved with hearts instead of gold
Yeah, the streets of where I'm from
Are paved with hearts instead of gold

And I don't know what you've been told
The streets of where I'm from
Are paved with hearts instead of gold
Yeah, the streets of where I'm from
Are paved with hearts instead of gold
Yeah, the streets of where I'm from
Are paved with hearts instead of gold AZ

Old 97's are an alt-country band originally based in Dallas, Texas, USA. The group formed in 1993 and took their name from a song popularized by Johnny Cash, "Wreck of the Old '97". They describe themselves as a rock band with influences as varied as the Kinks, the Beatles, Pixies, David Bowie, X, and Merle Haggard. The band often performs songs made famous by the latter two musicians, and has interspersed a number of these on their eight releases since 1994.

Old 97's have been heralded as a great live band. They included five live songs as a bonus disc on Satellite Rides, and released a live double CD set recorded at historic Gruene Hall in 2005, Alive and Wired. Singer/guitarist Rhett Miller has released three solo albums and singer/bassist Murry Hammond released his first solo effort in April 2008. Ken Bethea plays lead guitar for the band and playing the drums/singing is Philip Peeples.
