"Vancouver Shakedown" as written by and Mitchell....
We only came here to play rock'n'roll
Share some times with some people we know
Drink some wine
Give us some time

We ain't no wise boys we ain't no fools
We tried to play clean and keep to the rules
We take and we give, just playin' our gig
But we got laid over

Ya we was done over
Somebody tell us what's goin' down
Don't need another Vancouver shakedown
Six miles high, six miles along

Chasin' the sun we've come to sing you a song
Deliver our goods
We're just rock'n'roll dudes
All these behind us, and one more to go

Fly to Vancouver, to do the lastshow
It's got to be good, like we know that it should
But we got laid over
Ya we was doneover

Somebody tell us what's goin' down
Don't need another Vancouver shakedown
Vancouver shakedown
Vancouver shakedown

We only came here to play rock'n'roll
Share some times with some people we know
Drink some wine
Give us some time

But we got laid over
Ya we was done over
Somebody tell us what's goin' down
Don't need another Vancouver shakedown

Vancouver shakedown
Vancouver shakedown
Vancouver shakedown
Vancouver shakedown
Vancouver shakedown
Vancouver shakedown
