Riot City Blues


COUNTRY GIRL

You never get too big
You never get too heavy
you never get too cool
That you stop payin' your dues
Oh yeah!
What can a poor boy do?
You better go back to you mama
She'll take care of you

Lost your wife
Lost your son
Stay out drinkin'
'till the morning comes
Oh yeah!
What can a poor boy do?
You better go back to you mama
She'll take care of you

Country girl take my hand
Lead me through this diseased land
I am tired i am weak i am worn
I have stole i have sinned
Oh my soul is unclean
Country girl got to keep on keeping on
Crazy women
Mess your head
Wake up drunk & bleeding
In some strange bed
Oh yeah!
What can a poor boy do?

You better go back to your mama
She'll take care of you

Country girl take my hand
Lead me through this diseased land
I am tired i am weak i am worn
I have stole i have sinned
Oh my soul is unclean
Country girl got to keep on keeping on
You gotta keep on keepin' on
You gotta keep on keepin' strong
You gotta keep on keepin' on
When you
Got the riot city blues

One thing i have to say
Before i have to go
Be careful with your seed
You will reap just what you sow
Oh yeah!
What can a poor boy do?
You better go back to your mama
She'll take care of you

Country girl take my hand
Lead me through this diseased land
I am tired i am weak i am worn
I have stole i have sinned
Oh my soul is unclean
Country girl got to keep on keeping on

NITTY GRITTY

Stray hungry dog
Stealing meat from a garbage can
If he don't get what he want
He get it when he can
City streets
Full of creeps
I'm knee deep in scum
Feel like christ on the cross
With a loaded fun

I'll kick ya like a horse now honey
Bite me like a dog
Scratch me till i bleed now sugar
Dontcha ever stop

Girl we gotta shake some action
Girl we gotta shake some action
We gotta get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

Hipshaker
Heartbreaker
Spine cracker
Voodoo witch
You got the gold
Gonna dig dig your sugar ditch
I'll do the crime
Serve the time
Murder first degree
Cast your spell
Gimme hell
Get down on your knees

I'll kick ya like a horse now honey
Bite me like a dog
Scratch me till i bleed now sugar
Dontcha ever stop

Girl we gotta shake some action
Girl we gotta shake some action
We gotta get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

Get down

Girl we gotta shake some action
Girl we gotta shake some action
We gotta get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

If yr gonna preach how to live
Ya gotta live what ya preach every day

Don't sell yr soul honey
Don't give it all away
Crash a plane
Go insane
Burn the palace down
Roll the dice
Bet yr life
I'll be comin' round

I'll kick you like a horse now honey
I'll bite ya like a dog
I'll kiss ya black & blue now sugar
I won't ever stop

Girl we gotta shake some action
Girl we gotta shake some action
We gotta get right down to the real nitty gritty
Get right down to the real nitty gritty

Get down

Girl we gotta shake some action

WHEN THE BOMB DROPS

We've had a lot of good times brother
I've knows you all my life
Mixing blood and drugs and women
In your journey to the endless night

I've watched you kill the love you're given
You sold your vision for a glimpse of heaven

Once you were a thief of fire
Now you're just a junkie liar
What you gonna cop
When the bomb drops?

There's been a million people brother
Just like you before
Think you're beyond good and eveil
You can't even find the door

Painting pictures on your wall
In junkie blood
Hey man! Ain't that cool?
It's so beautiful!

Once you were a thief of fire
Now you're just a junkie liar
What you gonna cop
When the bomb drops?

Ain't no medicine to cure you
Ain't no woman you can love
Only death can make you painless
Only death can make you come

Junkie Jesus on the cross
You beg for scraps like a mongrel dog

Once you were a thief of fire
Now you're just a junkie liar
What you gonna cop
When the bomb drops?


LITTLE DEATH

Little death
Witchy hex
Leave disturbance in my head
Cowboy mouth
Indian blood
Little death
The perfect curse

Little death
Thief of fire
Love you baby
'till the day I die
Cloven hoof
Thunderwing
Holy pony
Gonna ride the wind

Little death
Sly as junk
Strong as death
Sweet as love
Make me dance
Make me sing
Buy you a death's head
Diamond ring


THE 99TH FLOOR

Everywhere I go
Everyone I see
Say "what's the matter witcha boy,
Ya got a strange a disease?"
Oh I know
I got something wrong with me
There's a hole in my heart
Where my baby used to be

Birds in the sky
Dogs on the ground
Rats in the garbage
But my baby can't be found
I'm going insane
They say she left on the midnight train
There's a hole in the sky
Cluster bombs fall like hard rain

I went to see the doctor
Shot me full of junk
I'm on the edge of the 99th floor
Everybody say "jump!"
I got a hole, got a hole in my head

Death on the stairs
Plague at my door
Ghost in my bed
Cry "she don't love you anymore"
Oh mama please
You got the keys to the kingdom
I'm digging holes in my arm
I can't shoot my way to freedom

I went to see the doctor
Shot me full of junk
I'm on the edge of the 99th floor
Everybody say "jump!"
I got a hole, got a hole in my head

If you see my baby
Tell her I'm in flames
I beg her please for water
But no more gasoline
Awww jesus christ
I just can't take anymore

I got holes in my hands
Where she naild me to the floor
Dig me a hole in the groung
I'm gonna jump from the 99th floor

I went to see the doctor
Shot me full of junk
I'm on the edge of the 99th floor
Everybody say "jump!"
I got a hole, got a hole in my head


WE'RE GONNA BOOGIE

You're a demon child
You're a demon child
Crawl 1000 miles
To see your death's smile
You're a demon child

You're the one I want
You're the one I want
The atomic bomb
The golden dawn
You're the one I want

I'm the garbage man
I'm the garbage man
Sticky fingers in your trashcan
I'm the garbage man

Gonna dig your ditch
Gonna dig your ditch
You can be my witch
I'll be your exorcist
Gonna dig your ditch

Gotta hit the road
Gotta hit the road
Steal a mustang ford
Drive her coast to coast
Gotta hit her road

We're gonna boogie
We're gonna boogie
We're gonna boogie
All night long
All night long


DOLLS(SWEET ROCK AND ROLL)

Lalalalalala

Saw you walking down the street
Holding hands with some other guy
Wearing a sharkskin suit, black patent leather boots
& big brown flying saucer eyes
I didn't talk to you then
You were kissing your friend
Besides it was the wrong time & place
I went home & took a shower
Read"Our Lady Of The Flowers" by Jane Genet
I knew we'd meet again

Dont't want your diamonds
Don't want your gold
I want your love
I want your soul
Come on baby, let's have a good time

Lalalalalalalala
Sweet Rock'n'Roll

I searched all over town
Quizzed the dudes hanging around,
No one had ever seen a chick like you before
I hit strip joints & museums
Bars and Clubs & Jesus
I even prayed in a cathedral for your soul
Then one rainy winter Tuesday
I saw you on the subway
You were headed for the tunnel
Me the door
I pressed my face against the glass
You sped by me in a flash
Like a motorcycle crash
You smoked my skull

Dont't want your diamonds
Don't want your gold
I want your love
I want your soul
Come on baby, let's have a good time

Lalalalalalalala
Sweet Rock'n'Roll

Here she comes now

So there I was walking in the pouring rain
Wonderin' who & why & where & what you were
I had hallucinatory dreams
Shivers sweats & screams
Like an opiate withdrawal only worse
Then one long hot summer night
I took a motorcycle ride
Saw you looking mean & evil
Voodoo rockabilly queen
'bout to kickstart your machine
Like a fighter pilot flying off to war
You had a tight black leather jacket
Skull & crossbones on the back
God bless your soul of sweet Gene Vincent
There you were

Dont't want your diamonds
Don't want your gold
I want your love
I want your soul
Come on baby, let's have a good time

Lalalalalalalala
Sweet Rock'n'Roll


HELL'S COMIN' DOWN

Once I had me a woman
She gave me all her love
She gave me her blessing
I gave her my curse
I drove her crazy
I drove her crazy
I sent her insane
Like a runaway train

In my lonely bed at night
I wish that I could die
Hell's comin' down
Hell's comin' down

We made love in the morning
We got drunk at night
When she was sleeping
I stabbed her with a knife
I did deceive her
I was midnight creeper
I robbed her blind
I drove her outta her mind

In my lonely bed at night
I wish that I could die
Hell's comin' down
Hell's comin' down

Feels like the whole world's
Comin' down on me
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Pain in my heart
Murder on my mind
I wish I was with her
I wish I could kiss her

There's no sun in the sky
No love in my life
Since I lost my baby
All I do is cry
She won't come back
No she won't come back
I broke her heart
I tore it all apart
In my lonely bed at night
I wish that I could die
Hell's comin' down
Hell's comin' down


SOMETIMES I FEEL SO LONELY

You can be redeemed boy
You can be redeemed
Life is but a dream boys
You can be redeemen
Nothing's as it seems
You can be redeemed

Everything's permitted
Nothing's really true
Live outside the law boys
Doing what to do
Nothing's at it seems
You can be redeemed

Somethimed I feel so lonely

You can be redeemed boy
You can be redeemed
Life is but a dream boys
You can be redeemen
Nothing's as it seems
You can be redeemed

Somethimed I feel so lonely
