Glenn Frey - Smuggler's Blues Lyrics

  • There's trouble on the streets tonight, I can feel it in my bones
  • I had a premonition, that he should not go alone
  • I knew the gun was loaded, but I didn't think he'd kill
  • Everything exploded and the blood began to spill
  • So baby, here's your ticket, put the suitcase in your hand
  • Here's a little money now, do it just the way we planned
  • You be cool for twenty hours and I'll pay you twenty grand
  • I'm sorry it went down like this,
  • And someone had to lose,
  • It's the nature of the business,
  • It's the smuggler's blues
  • Smuggler's blues
  • The sailors and pilots, the soldiers and the law,
  • The pay-offs and the rip-offs, and the things nobody saw
  • No matter if it's heroin, cocaine, or hash,
  • You've got to carry weapons 'cause you always carry cash
  • There's lots of shady characters, lots of dirty deals
  • Every name's an alias in case somebody squeals
  • It's the lure of easy money, it's got a very strong appeal
  • Perhaps you'd understand it better
  • Standin' in my shoes
  • It's the ultimate enticement,
  • It's the smuggler's blues
  • Smuggler's blues
  • See it in the headlines, you hear it every day
  • They say they're gonna stop it but it doesn't go away
  • They move it through Miami, sell it in L.A.
  • They hide it up in Telluride, I mean it's here to stay
  • It's propping up the governments in Columbia and Peru,
  • You ask any DEA man, he'll say, "There's nothin' we can do"
  • >From the office of the President, right down to me and you, me and you
  • It's a losing proposition,
  • But one you can't refuse
  • It's the politics of contraband,
  • It's the smuggler's blues
  • Smuggler's blues
