Five Best...Songs about Cleveland


#5. "Drunk on the Moon" by Tom Waits

Hearts flutter and race
The moon's on the wane
Tarts mutter their dream hopes
The night will ordain
Come schemers and dancers
Cherry delight
As a Cleveland-bound Greyhound
And it cuts throught the night


#4. "Oh My Sweet Carolina" by Ryan Adams

So I went on to Cleveland and ended up insane
Bought a borrowed suit and learned to dance
I was spending money like the way it likes to rain
And I ended up with pockets full of 'caine.


#3. "Cleveland Rocks" by Ian Hunter

I got some records from World War Two
I'll play 'em just like me Grand Dad do
He was a rocker and I am too
Oh, Cleveland Rocks,
Yeah, Cleveland Rocks!


#2. "Pancho and Lefty" by Townes Van Zandt

The poets tell how Pancho fell,
And Lefty's living in cheap hotels
The desert's quiet, Cleveland's cold,
And so the story ends we're told


#1. "Look Out Cleveland" by The Band

Look Out, Cleveland, the storm is comin' through,
And it's runnin' right up on you.
Look out, Houston, There'll be thunder on the hill;
Bye-bye, baby, don't cha lie so still.

The last chorus of "Rednecks" by Randy Newman is beautiful.
