Bank Robber

Black Market Clash EP

Lyrics c/o uwp

This is as close as my ear could get it. The problem

is there really isn't any straight guitar playing.

The intro lines are what I play along with the initial

humming. As always, corrections encouraged.

My Daddy was a bankrobber

G C G (is this G here right?)

But he never hurt nobody

G C G

He just loved to live that way

C D G

And he loved to steal your money

G C G

Some is rich, and some is poor

G C G (eh?)

That's the way the world is

G C G

But I don't believe in lying back

C D G

Sayin' how bad your luck is

So we came to jazz it up

We never loved a shovel

Break your back to earn your pay

An' don't forget to grovel

The old man spoke up in a bar

Said I never been in prison

A lifetime serving one machine

Is ten times worse than prison

Imagine if all the boys in jail

Could get out now together

Whadda you think they'd want to say to us?

While we was being clever

Someday you'll meet your rocking chair

Cos that's where we're spinning

There's no point to wanna comb your hair

When it's grey and thinning

Run rabbit run

Strike out boys, for the hills

I can find that hole in the wall

And I know that they never will
