Alice Childress Lyrics

Some summers in the evening after 6 or so
I walk on down the hill
And maybe buy a beer
I think about my friends
Sometimes I wish they lived out here
But they wouldn't dig this town
No they wouldn't dig this town

Try not to think about...

    This song seems to be about a woman who has given up after losing faith in humanity (possibly after an arranged marriage?). The narrarator is trying to comfort her, telling her to simply pretend there are some good people.

    Later in the song, the narrator himself is mugged outside his house. The theif takes "everything I had, and everything I have" which I take to mean he took both his possessions and his faith in humanity.
