​L.A. River

This song is by Rancid and appears on the album Let the Dominoes Fall (2009).

1951 small town kids got nothing to do
But dream all night of movie stars and Cadillac cars
And beautiful girls and big city lights

LA River dragnet coming down
LA River dragnet coming down

From every corner of this great old nation
Good kids succumb to the depths of temptation
Homecoming queens get lost in the cracks
And quarterback heroes get strung out on smack

LA River dragnet coming down
LA River dragnet coming down

You wake up one day with a monkey on your back
With foil on all your windows and you're hiding all your tracks
The sheriff's shotgun don't make a sound
When it's pointed at your corpse after he shot you down

LA River dragnet coming down
LA River dragnet coming down
