I put this shovel down
Hire me on better grounds
I can't afford no gas
I walk to work on the overpass
My teenage daughter's knocked up
Well jeanie this time you really fucked up
You aughtta be in the hospital
But I can't afford to go, the bill

Hey hey revolver
Don't lead me on
Your shiny barrel
Is long and narrow
Hey hey Revolver

I put this shovel down
I walk the line into Hudson town
The blue burger king billboard signs Remind me of her mother's eyes
She ran off to be a T.V. star
I hope she found what she was lookin for
I promised Jeanie she'd see L.A.
If I ever made some cash someday

Hey hey revolver
Don't lead me on
Your shiny barrel
Is long and narrow
Hey hey Revolver

    Song MeaningThis song sounds kind of suicidal to me. He's reflecting on his life, while sitting with a revolver. Any thoughts?
