As I past by I-75 the weeds I see
I know by that sight I’m in the D
It looks shabby to outsiders
But this neighborhood is where I come home to be.
Driving down 8 mile
Which has many stories to tell
About the days and nights
And who sleeps and gets freaky in the many motels.
Strip clubs and fast food joints line the street
For late night eats and carnal treats
This road for sure can’t be beat.
After work, often tired I see
Faces and places going about their day
From gas stations to medical weed locations
There’s bad and good I can say.
It goes a long way through city and suburb
Its name you’ve probably heard
In movies, on TV, through music maybe
You can walk up and down till your feet hurts
This road goes through my neighborhood and I’m proud to say
Through potholes and smooth streets
I drive on 8 mile each and every day.
