Downey Girl is Karen Carpenter

There was once a young girl
Lived in my hometown
She became a star
The whole world round

With the Voice of an Angel
Singin’ sweet suburban songs
No one in our whole town
Knew anything was wrong

She was a Downey Girl
She was a Downey Girl

Well I never liked her music
I never saw her hangin’ round
And I never said nothin’
When people put her down.

Now that I’m older
I can understand her pain
And I can feel a little pride
When people say her name

Cuz she was a Downey Girl
Cuz she was a Downey Girl

Now I’m on the highway
A thousand years from my hometown
Missing friends and family who are no longer around
Then I hear her sing
On the car radio
A sweet suburban song from a long time ago
And I think about her sadness
And I think about her pain
And for a few sweet minutes
I’m back home again

She was a Downey Girl
She was a Downey Girl

Hello Kush,

Thanks for your postings here. I hope to see Mr. Alvin when he next visits the UK.

Glad you enjoy Dave Alvin's music, Tony. He will be in Chicago next week with Jimmie Dale Gilmore, I might try and make it. Here are some more songs:

Thanks for the links, Kush. I am sure that it will not surprise you that I have already seen them. I really enjoy listening to his music. I hope you manage to get to his concert. Maybe he will let slip if he is going to be in the UK at any time in the near future.
