​Smith And Wesson Blues

This song is by Radio Birdman and appears on the album Living Eyes (1981) and on the live album Ritualism (1996).

I went downtown
For something to do
Couldn't find nothing, said I
Couldn't find nothing to do
I was hanging round in bars
I was wasting time
Your face made my past
Look like a lousy dime

'Cause you're never alone with a Smith and Wesson baby
You're never alone when you come round here
Wild kinetic rivers of sorrow
Riding to hell on rails of fear

Sitting in a restaurant
Waiting for 6 A.M.
The waitress was rough
And the milk was skim
Sunlight blasting through the window
Nearly drove me blind
Just like the light
On the front of that 12.05

'Cause you're never alone with a Smith and Wesson baby
You're never alone when you come round here
Wild kinetic rivers of sorrow
Riding to hell on rails of fear

Night eyes shining
Like Valparaiso street lights
Wasted dogs were hanging round the dawn
Visions fading down
The streets of science
Lizard king is
Leading me on

'Cause you're never alone with a Smith and Wesson baby
You're never alone when you come round here
Wild kinetic rivers of sorrow
Riding to hell on rails of fear
