Fogtown


It was a red sun rising early in this ghetto
A full moon was rising late last night
But you would not know, no you were fast asleep
You only see this city in the broad daylight

Fogtown
Fogtown, I'm down and out on your streets
Oh I would run if I only had a place to run to
Fogtown

Her name was Ruby Red
She was a hard time hooker
She had a man named Juan
He tried to keep her clean
But late last night when the heroin took her
There was one less siren when the sirens reached the scene

When a city's got the charms of a painted lady
When survival bites like a black-haired bitch
You can find yourself on the closest corner
You want to stay you want to go
You've got the Fogtown itch

Secret to a Long Life


Billy Barlow was a poor boy

That's why he robbed the Union Grove Bank

He was a sweet talking ladies man

That's what he'd have ladies all to think


Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go


So when the posse came riding

Billy went hiding down south

Holed up in a shack with Maria

With the black hair and the ruby red mouth


Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go


So when the news reached her lover

Billy ran for cover, don't you know

And when the bullets started ringing

Billy started singing "Time to go..."


Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

Ohhhh, time to go now!


Billy headed north where the sands of the Badlands blow

But in his dreams he's south

He's still kissing that ruby red mouth


Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

Oh the secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go


The secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

The secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

The secret to a long life's knowing when it's time to go

Secret to a Long Life
