Lyrics

Written by Dave Alvin.

She's waiting for me
When I get home from work
Oh, but things just ain't the same
She turns out the lights
And cries in the dark
And she won't answer when I call her name

[Chorus]
On the stairs I smoke a
Cigarette alone
Mexican kids are shooting
Fireworks below
And hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July
Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July

She gives me a cheek
When I want her lips
Oh, but I don't have the strength to go
On the lost side of town
In a dark apartment
We gave up trying so long ago

[Chorus]
On the stairs I smoke a
Cigarette alone
Mexican kids are shooting
Fireworks below
And hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July
Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July
