In a city full of double deals
My boss would yawn and roll back on his heels
Like anyone could cop a feel of lady luck
I was made with my brother Bill
Drinking Muskie Moons on top of Laurel Hill
It's funny now I'd cheek a poison pill to sober up
And no two-bit claim of I'm all right
Is gonna turn around and make it right
So I'm fishing in my pocket for a light
And I'm standin' on the corner on a Saturday night
[ Tab from: ]
I seen pigeons flap their filthy wings
To a freezing sunset in the west
Rain pissing down from their haunted perch
In the bells above St. Someone's church
The Sexton drinks and dreams in bed
One eye in a line of light
Startled by a ghost he screams his dead
Wife's name into the night
Which echoes down a cobbled hall
Bounces off a gray stone floor
Fired down a line of stairs
Where it's silenced by a door
Beyond which I am leaning, leaning
Watching cars and dreaming
As steam rose 'round my body
Like my soul up to the stars

I guess the devil's had his way with town
No what Willie is in the ground
And I guess the devil made me this
When he gave me no one I can't resist
I got the bill today
Wrote back I moved away
They called me up to say
They know that
I'm still here

So on the 5th day of the 5th month
At 5 o'clock in the dawn
I rolled myself in a T-O-P
And jumped out on Highway One
With a 400 engine hot as a cremation coffin
And a tailgate bangin' like an airplane wing
I was rollin' on the highway doing it my way
Whistling "Someday" and singing this song
