Bleecker Street

ŠPaul Simon, released on Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (Simon and Garfunkel) 1964


Fog's rollin' in off the East River bank

Like a shroud it covers Bleeker Street

Fills the alleys where men sleep

Lies the shepherd from the sheep

Voices leaking from a sad cafe

Smiling faces try to understand

I saw a shadow touch a shadow's hand

On Bleeker Street


A poet reads his crooked rhyme

Holy, holy is his sacrament

Thirty dollars pays your rent

On Bleeker Street

I heard a church bell softly chime

In a melody sustainin'

It's a long road to Canaan

On Bleeker Street
