Lyrics of

Black cow

Play the MIDI file View the transcriptions
	
In the corner of my eye, I saw you in Rudys'
You were very high
You were high,
It was a cryin' disgrace, They saw your face
On the counter, by your keys,
Was a book of numbers, and your remedies
One one of these, surely will screen out the sorrow
But where are you tomorrow
 
I can't cry anymore, while you run around
Break away, just when it seems so clear,
That it's over now,
Drink your big black cow and get out of here

Down to Greene Street, there you go,
Looking so outrageous, and they tell you so
You should know, how all the pros play the game, 
You change your name
Like a gangster, on the run,
You will stagger home, to your precious one
I'm the one
Who must make everything right, talk it out till daylight

I dont care anymore, why you run around
Break away, just when it seems so clear,
That it's over now,
Drink your big black cow and get out of here. 

so outrageous, so outrageous
