I'da Called You Woody, Joe

This song is by The Gaslight Anthem and appears on the album Sink or Swim (2007).

I was crawlin' around in my head in the haze of a trance
'Til Rico said, "I'ma turn you onto a sound,
Cool out your head
This is the sound from Camden Town"

And then I heard it like a shot from my skull to my brain
I felt my fingertips tingle, and it started to rain
When the walls of my bedroom were tremblin' around me
This ramshackle voice over attack of a blue beat
And tellin' me he's only lookin' for fun

And this was the sound of the very last gang in town
As heard by my wild young heart like directions on a cold dark night
Sayin', "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right"
And I heard in his chain gang soul how it wasn't just the same sad song
Sayin', "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right
And you're doin' all right
Are you doin' all right?"

And I carried these songs like a comfort wherever I go
And they was there when my summers was high
And there when she left me alone
Sayin', "The soul is hard to find"

And I never got to tell him, so I just wrote it down
I wrapped a couple chords around it, then I let it come out
When the walls of my bedroom trembled around me
This ramshackle voice over attack of a blue beat
And a girl from the excitement gang

And this was the sound of the very last gang in town
As heard by my wild young heart like directions on a cold dark night
Sayin', "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right"
And I heard in his chain gang soul how it wasn't just the same sad song
Sayin', "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right
And are you're doin' all right?
Are you doin' all right?"

As heard it by my wild young heart like directions on a cold dark night
Sayin', "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right"
And I heard in his chain gang soul how it wasn't just the same sad song
Sayin', "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right
And are you're doin' all right?"

That was the sound
Oh, will you hear the sound?
I hear the sound
Of the very last gang in town
