Cold 44 Blues


He wore a two-dollar ring an' a pair of suede shoes
A velvet skin jacket an' a pocket full o' blues
She danced all night long by the jukebox machine
A whore and a preacher make a perfect matching scene
She drank whiskey and rye, she looked so fine
A pretty ballerina under the strip joint's light
Goin' where her daddy pawned his wedding pride
A Cavalier searchin' for his 44 tonite

He reaches for his gun 'cos he never ever had a home
He never had a girl that he could call his own

He found her lyin' on the floor 'bout a quarter past four
She was all drunk and wasted "what the fuck is goin' on??"
He read the bible out loud and he poured himself some wine
This is how it goes down here on Hollywood & Vine
She was an "oh so pretty gal" in an "oh so dirty world"
She dropped down on her knees an the devil took her soul
She's roamin' down the boulevard of debaucher and sin
Where neon hearts get broken and they shed a tear within

He reaches for his gun 'cos he never ever had a home
He never had a girl that he could call his own

This Romeo is bleeding as he's up against the wall
Searching in his pocket for the keys to his front door
He never gave a damn about a single little thing
That's why he's now all tattered sinkin' deep into his drink
His poor old heart is achin' as he breaks another glass
He stares into the mirror thinkin' back about his past
He closes his eyes, he stumbles and he falls down on the floor
He reaches for the drawer where he keeps his 44.

He reaches for his gun 'cos he never ever had a home
He never had a girl that he could call his own
