A Bad Man's  In  Trouble

 

Feelin' cold as a grave

'Member December on the sidewalk

City shadows in the midnight

Freight train dirges through the concrete

 

Movin' full to the moon

Over behind slower closer

It's Ichabod swingin' darkness

Empty-hearted full o' cussin'

 

            A bad man's in trouble

            Some fools' number's comin' up

            Hangin' Judas for a plug nickle scuffle

            Good lord a bad man's in trouble              

 

Chokin' down desperation

Grabbin' collars squeezin' harder

Echoes strung out on a tight rope

Now gimme yo' money or I kill ya

 

             A bad man's in trouble

            Some fools' number's comin' up

            Hangin' Judas for a plug nickle scuffle

            Good lord a bad man's in trouble

 

                        I got to feed my children

                        Devil's gotta black blade knife

                        Good lord a bad man's in trouble

 

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

 

                                                          Malcolm Holcombe
