Lyrics: Mando Saenz – Pittsburgh

From Mando’s Second CD “Bucket” Available at Red River Market.

*********************************************************************

I went to Pittsburgh and I went by walking in a main street corner, store, store, store
I left New England and a sun dress was talking begging me for more

I picked a red rose steel town grown and cast a shadow by the river side
I ate the fire and I drank the sandstone and took a rain check on my pride, pride, pride

I bought a camera and took a freeze frame of an old nun, she was mortified, -fied, -fied, fied
I sang a new song with an old name and it cut me deep inside, side, side

And God, He named me, held me ransom, and put my picture on his shelf, shelf, shelf,
I wrote some lines then I soon forgot them
Cause I started to think of something, else, else

I picked a red rose, steel town grown cast a shadow by the river side, riverside

I went to Pittsburgh and I went by walking in a main street corner store

Pride pride pride
