Hard times and trouble, everyone I meet
Ain't nobody walkin' on Peaceable Street
Hard times and trouble, everyone I meet
Ain't nobody walkin' on Peaceable Street

All the poor ones driftin' like smoke into the night
Something in the neighborhood soakin' up the light
Hard times and trouble, everyone I meet
Ain't nobody walkin' on Peaceable Street

I can feel it in the honky-tonks, it's never off my mind
Something with no mercy coming from behind
Hard times and trouble, everyone I meet
Ain't nobody walkin' on Peaceable Street
Ain't nobody walkin' on Peaceable Street
