dad’s gonna kill me lyrics – richard thompson

Loading...

out in the desert there’s a soldier lying dead
vultures pecking the eyes out of his head
another day that could have been me there instead
n-body loves me here
n-body loves me here

dad’s gonna kill me
dad’s gonna kill me

you hit the b–by trap and you’re in pieces
with every bullet your risk increases
old ali baba, he’s a different species
n-body loves me here
n-body loves me here

dad’s gonna kill me
dad’s gonna kill me

i’m dead meat in my humv frankenstein
i hit the road block, god knows i never hit the mine
the dice rolled and i got lucky this time

dad’s gonna kill me
dad’s gonna kill me

i’ve got a wife, a kid, another on the way
i might get home if i can live through today
before i came out here i never used to pray
n-body loves me here
n-body loves me here

dad’s gonna kill me

dad’s in a bad mood, dad’s got the blues
it’s someone else’s mess that i didn’t choose
at least we’re winning on the fox evening news
n-body loves me here

dad’s gonna kill me
dad’s gonna kill me

dawn patrol went out and didn’t come back
hug the wire and pray like i told you, mac
or they’ll be shovelling bits of you into a sack

dad’s gonna kill me.

and who’s that stranger walking in my dreams
and whose that stranger cast a shadow ‘cross my heart
and who’s that stranger, i dare speak his name
must be old death a-walking
must be old death a-walking

dad’s gonna kill me

7 muzzle monkeys standing in a row
standing waiting for the sandbox to blow
sitting targets in the wild west show

n-body loves me here

dad’s gonna kill me

another angel got his wings this week
charbroiled with his own willie pete
n-body’s dying if you speak double-speak

dad’s gonna kill me
