Lyrics

Well I’m a gangster 1934
Junkies, winos, pimps and whores
And all you men, women and kids
Best get out the way

I just left your town took all your loot
Bought a pink carnation and a pin-striped suit
A hopped up V-8 Ford
And some two-toned shoes

Chorus:
And I’m already gone
I left a pool of blood and sorrow
I’ve got the machine gun blues

I’ll be outta here before the break of dawn
I’ll hit the highway; smoke a big cigar
Gotta stop and bury the cash
Then get some more

There’s only one thing on my mind
That’s making across that ol’ state line
Without a hail of avenging bullets
Waiting there for me

Chorus:
And I’m already gone
I left a path of pure destruction
I’ve got the machine gun blues
Already gone, my life will soon through
I’ve got the machine gun blues

I’m public enemy number one
And I’m sorry for the things that I’ve done
And if indeed we do cross paths…
It’s nothing personal

Chorus:
And I’m already gone
I left a trail of devastation
I’ve got the machine gun blues
Already gone, my life will soon be through
I’ve got the machine gun blues
