lyrics

I found my six string case
at the back of the basement.
It had seven strings missing,
right proper defaced,
know what I'm saying?

So I took 'em rattling bones,
and I started singing the blues.
I had seven things missing,
but I couldn't find 'em at home.

Look here son,
you can't see straight
down the barrel of a gun.

So turn it down, slowly now.

I found my old white suit
at the back of the closet.
It had seven buttons missing
and a hot black coffee stain on it.

So I took it to the dry cleaner;
the dry cleaner said son, well look,
I'll see you later, cause I had seven dollars missing,
"If you wanna see your threads, I wanna see my papers."

Look here son,
you can't see straight
down the barrel of a gun.

So turn it down, slowly now.
