lyrics

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
