I fell down in the pouring rain Hot and shivers up and down my legs An ambulance carried me down to a dungeon door I asked my baby would she wait for me I guess her love ‘aint what it used to be And now the future we have ‘aint the future we had before Big balck chain, can’t you hear me callin’ Cold, cold rain, Lord, it just kept fallin’ The light started falling on the walls of my cell Somebody started ringing on a big old bell It rattled my nerves until I thought I’d jump outa my skin I saw a guard open up an iron door Saw him walk a prisoner across the floor They took him away and they never came back again Chorus There was blood on the wall, blood on the floor I ran like I never ran before The moon was fallin’ like a big brass ball as I was knockin on my baby’s door I asked my baby would she let me in She said don’t come around here again I got a brand new man and he knows what a woman’s for Repeat chorus I’ve heard it said that misery’s the wage of sin But desperation holds the door to let you in If you think that any numbers gonna be your friend You better think real hard, think again ‘cause everybody loses in a gambling game And if the worst of your luck already knows your name It’s only just a matter of time before your good luck ends Repeat chorus

Little bit of Heaven in an El Camino Just lookin for a little fun She hit the tracks And she cracked the axle Now it looks like the night is done Looks like the night is done, pretty mama Yeah, it looks like the night is done It’s a broken down Chevy south of Kalama Just lookin’ for a little fun Baby, hey baby, sweet lovin’ honey I wanna be your handy man I got more tools in this rig I’m drivin’ Than at least three other men Than at least three other men, pretty mama Than at least three other men I’ll fix your broken down Chevy, south of Kalama And I’ll get cha on the road again Now the oil pan’s cracked and the axle’s cracked But I’ll tell you what I can do I can give you a ride to the dancehall, baby So that I can dance with you So that I can dance with you, pretty mama So that I can dance with you It’s a broken down Chevy south of Kalama But there’s somethin’ else we can do. I felt a bit silly and a little bit daffy When she beat me up under the hood She said, I work full time on an assembly line So I can fix this here car real good

I got the Blitzkrieg Blues I been sleepin' in my shoes even if I win I lose so I'm gonna take a walk she gives me excitations in a good location but it's a strange situation up and down the block well, I'm much too wild to stay in school I gotta find a new place where the kids are cool come and go with me now tell me whatcha wanna do? it's a Summertime heat wave but I don't wanna be saved I'm a drivin' down a highway to the very last stop honey, take a look at me now I think that anyone can see now I 'aint sweet like yer candy, baby or yer soda pop repeat chorus she's putin' on her lipstick and I'm pullin' out the dipstick and the radio's playin' the Blitzkrieg Bob and the night's almost over but I only wanna hold her and if this Goddamn car wont start then, I guess, we'll walk, oh yeah repeat chorus
