I knew a woman,
She was my friend,
When we met I felt like I’d been born again
Ah, we spent all our time outside
‘Cause people say small things when they stay too long in little rooms.
In the sunshine
In the rain or snow
We even climbed a pinetree in a tornado
Outside was where all our live was found
And I guess we must have walked on every street in town.

Every street in town,
Every street in town,
In the cool summer evenings
Or when the snow was falling down,
We’d go walkin’ on every street in town.

[harmonica break]

She’d been gone such a long, long time
But it’s often I feel her right there by my side
When I’m walkin’ I’m talkin’ to her
In the wet and yellow fall
Or past the parks in the summer
Where the kids is playin’ ball
An’ it’s sometimes I see a woman out alone
An’ she worried about gettin’ back to her home
An’ I think of my friend and all of the joy that we found
When we’s just walkin’ and talkin’ on every street in town.

An’ I wonder when the day will every come
When we won’t be so sad and so dumb
An’ when a woman could walk out free in the day and night
Without havin’ to worry if she’s gonna be alright on

Every street in town,
Every street in town,
In the cool summer evenings
Or when the snow was falling down,
We’d go walkin’ on every street in town
