Lyrics

Raymore Drive
© Tony Turner

VERSE 1
I married Dot at the end of the war
She stayed at home and I ran the store
We said hello to Etobicoke
Our new home by the riverside
On a street called Raymore Drive

CHORUS
I had a home on Raymore Drive
White picket fence; we had arrived
Nice place to live, raise a family of five
Raymore Drive

VERSE 2
Hazel came October ‘54
A hurricane like we’d never seen before
Bridge let go, backed up the flow
I could feel that river rise
And wash out Raymore Drive

BRIDGE
The river rose so fast there wasn’t any time
To cross that muddy water, all we could do
was climb
Saw houses shift, break apart and drift
They were taken with the tide
That swept through Raymore Drive

SOLO OVER CHORUS

One city street built with pride
Now it’s a park by the riverside
Nights when it rains I’m back there again
And I hear the neighbours cry
From the roofs of Raymore Drive

CHORUS
I had a home on Raymore Drive
Fireworks out front on the first of July
Nice place to live, bad place to die
Raymore Drive
Raymore Drive
Raymore Drive
