Going Home on the Subway
Today
(Alone)

I moved this to the final title file name:
A Cost-Benefit Analysis of Modern Urban
Publicly-Funded Mass Transit Systems
(Subway Blues)

first live draft
"Subway"

Not even a demo - 2022 01 25a
original purely unintended composition to live tape

Lyrics as best I could transcribe them:

(Let's see how this goes
- a bit louder)

I found my way home
On the day today
on my subway I thought I could go

I thought I could go on the subway today
but you know I was going home

Going home and home
alone and home

I thought I could go on the subway today
cause I thought I was going home

Subway was going home

Some thoughts and trials later
"Going Home on the Subway"

Demo - 2022 01 25b
fleshed out a bit over some chords I liked the flow of
- and found a nice "hook" lying there among them

Lyrics I probably worked from:

I'm going home on the subway today
I'm all alone on the subway today

Going home going home
Going home all alone
I'm going home on the subway today

Stopping for coffee on the subway today
I was alone on the subway today
I'm going home on the subway today

Dirty windows elevated neighborhood
I'm going home on the subway today
I'm all alone on the subway today

Going home going home
Going home all alone
I'm going home on the subway today

They said we'd never live to see this
I'm going home on the subway today

They cut the city right in half so I could
I'm going home on the subway today

Clitter clatter chug and click and chatter
I'm going home on the subway today
I'm all alone on the subway today

Going home going home
Going home all alone

I'm going home on the subway today
I'm all alone on the subway today
