There was a shot in the alley way
I heard it from down stairs
I think I saw a man running
I think he went down there

I had a mite little Bourbon
I lit a cigarette
I called you up on the telephone
It seemed the safest bet

Someone made a big mistake
And now the cops are coming
Sirens scorched the city streets
Now everybody's running from the law

I can't believe this has happened
That man must be a wretch
I bet he burned up the evidence
I bet there's nothing left

There was a fire out my window
There was a car overturned
Calf's cried opportunity
A chance not to get burned
