Sixto Rodriguez - Inner City Blues Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Going down a dirty inner city side road
  • I plotted
  • Madness passed me by, she smiled hi
  • I nodded
  • Looked up as the sky began to cry
  • She shot it.
  • Met a girl from Dearborn, early six o'clock this morn
  • A cold fact
  • Asked about her bag, suburbia's such a drag
  • Won't go back
  • 'Cos Papa don't allow no new ideas here
  • And now he sees the news, but the picture's not too clear.
  • Mama, Papa, stop
  • Treasure what you got
  • Soon you may be caught
  • Without it
  • The curfew's set for eight
  • Will it ever all be straight
  • I doubt it.
  • 7 jealous fools playing by her rules
  • Can't believe her
  • He feels so in between, can't break the scene
  • It would grieve her
  • And that's the reason why he must cry
  • He'll never leave her.
  • Crooked children, yellow chalk
  • Writing on the concrete walk
  • Their King died
  • Drinking from a Judas cup,
  • Looking down but seeing up
  • Sweet red wine
  • 'Cos Papa don't allow no new ideas here
  • And now you hear the music
  • But the words don't sound too clear.
  • Mama, Papa, stop
  • Treasure what you got
  • Soon you may be caught
  • Without it
  • The curfew's set for eight
  • Will it ever all be straight
  • I doubt it.
  • Going down a dusty, Georgian side road
  • I wonder
  • The wind splashed in my face
  • Can smell a trace
  • Of thunder
