Uptown Downtown (Misery's All the Same)

I said I'm through with honky tonks
They only bring me down
I dressed my best and headed for
The brightest spot in town
I've watched the rich folks come and go and one thing's very clear
There's just as many lonely people here

I'm just hangin' round a better class of losers
It don't matter if you drink bear or champagne
I've only found a better class of losers
Uptown, downtown, misery's all the same

It's been all downhill for me
Since baby walked away
I'm down here at the bottom
And I guess that's where I'll stay
I'm looking for the answers
But all that I've seen here
Is the same old lonely phony atmosphere

I'm just hangin' round a better class of losers
It don't matter if you drink bear or champagne
I've only found a better class of losers
Uptown, downtown, misery's all the same

For the blues are still the blues
Still just as hard to lose
Uptown, downtown misery's all the same
