Cryin’ in Hoboken

Getting drunk in a Hoboken bar
I keep hearing an old Roy Orbison
Song over and over,
Not that foolishness
Of Pretty Woman
That made such a great
Film fantasy,
But that other one
About crying,
His voice stretched out
In open seduction
That every man and woman
In the bar feels down
Deep in their bones
Each of them
Crying as they get
The illusion that
They will walk out of this
Place with their

Dignity in tact
