Water Street 

©1979, 2010 Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Water Street.

Title track of my first (1983) LP. Water Street runs off the edge of Middlebury, Vermont, where I spent summers from age 7-12 as my mother was studying French. Water Street looked like it led into an enchanted, beautiful world. But I never did go there, until I was grown up and of course I shouldn't have gone at all. My father is not an alcoholic. Some of my songs are autobiographical, and more of them aren't. 

Someday I will walk down Water Street 
Far among the noble fields 
Someday I will walk down Water Street 
Far among the noble fields 

It's a pleasant street to walk by 
Starts at the edge of the edge of town 
It's a pleasant street to walk by 
The kind of street I don't walk down 

Someday I will walk down Water Street 
Far among the noble fields 
Someday I will walk down Water Street 
Far among the noble fields 

Whiskey dogs my father's footsteps 
Hot guilt blinds my mother's eye 
I am weak and I am lonely 
I have only one long try 

Someday I will walk down Water Street 
Far among the noble fields 
Someday I will walk down Water Street 
Far among the noble fields 

There is a light at the edge of Water Street 
Each remembered, none forgot 
We are called from the end of Water Street 
Gather here, and suffer not

Someday I will walk down Water Street  
Far among the noble fields  
Someday I will walk down Water Street  
Far among the noble fields
