Lake Shore Drive Lyrics

A lot of people find my blog because they are looking for the lyrics to the song "Lake Shore Drive" by Aliotta, Haynes, and Jeremiah. And I can see why. These are difficult lyrics to find. But, because I'm a nice girl, I found them and will post them here so that these searches aren't futile. Here you go.

Lake Shore Drive by Aliotta, Haynes, and Jeremiah

There's a road I'd like to tell you about,
lives in my home town
Lake Shore Drive the road is called
and it'll take you up or down
From rags on up to riches
fifteen minutes you can fly
Pretty blue lights along the way,
help you right on by
And the blue lights shining with a heavenly grace,
help you right on by

And there ain't no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore Drive
heading into town
Just slippin' on by on LSD,
Friday night trouble bound

And it starts up north from Hollywood,
water on the driving side
Concrete mountains rearing up,
throwing shadows just about five
Sometimes you can smell the green
if your mind is feeling fine
There ain't no finer place to be,
than running Lake Shore Drive
And there's no peace of minded place you see,
than running Lake Shore Drive?


And it's Friday night and you're looking clean,
oo early to start the rounds
A ten minute ride from the Gold Coast back
make sure you're pleasure bound
And it's four o'clock in the morning
and all of the people have gone away
Just you and your mind and Lake Shore Drive,
tomorrow is another day
And the sunshine's fine in the morning time,
tomorrow is another day

Thank you. I was in fact having difficulty loacting an [i]accurate[/i] transcription of these lyrics. Speaking of which, the last time that the chorus is sung, the lyrics are switched to "Just [i]snakin'[/i] on by on LSD" on that line.
