Album :No Exit
Title :

Under The Gun (for Jeffrey Lee Pierce)


I still can picture him: his hands in his back pockets.
He wasn't much for wordsbut when the wise kids made a racket he'd just have to go downtownthrow his weight around before starting over.

"Say did you hear I've got a band?
Some guys I know from L.A.
We'll own the Rio Grande.
I'll pay you back next Friday.
You know it sure ain't bigjust some cats I dig.
They said they'd do the gig."

Oh Desperadowhy don't you spend your life in Colorado?
Oh Restless Shadowout in the blue hills you're feeling hollow.

Oh El Diablowhy did you spend your life in California?
I should have warned ya.
No place to go now but falling over.

Some hands can't make it on the rununder the gun.
Not for the younger.
Oh Jack DanielsI feel your hunger.

I know you did your bestbut you thought that you did not.
I wish that I had known before I heard the last shot.
You knowit's not a sinthat little badge of tin.
Just a momento.

So sad you loved in vain.
My comrades lost in battle.
The music wars are done from London to Seattle.
We all pay to play and all our yesterdays are starting over.

Oh Desperadowhy don't you spend your life in Colorado?
Oh Restless Shadowout on the blue hills you're feeling hollow.

Oh El Diablowhy did you spend your life in California?
I should have warned ya.
No place to go now but falling over.

Ready to die.
Now he's ready to die.
