lyrics

Blackmarket Blues

she said "honey I'll pawn my ring,
dye my hair, change my name,
I don't wanna hear another word out of you,
I shot my sugar daddy with a .45,
stabbed his old lady with a shiny knife,
burned all of my credit cards for fuel"

Oh I threw myself down a line,
I got high, I came alive, I came around,
I came down for you

48 hours in a pitch black cell,
threw my old soul into a wishing well,
kissed my lips to a sweaty dollar bill,
counted my quarters in the kitchen sink,
cocked my rifle and took a drink,
caught the last bus to Bethlehem

Saw a light flash on top of the hill,
caught a black bullet in the side of my skull,
fell to my knees in a puddle of wine,
my eyes closed and my ears rang out,
pictured myself wearing a big straw hat,
rowing a boat, and singin' to you
