  • There's a mad wind blowin down the ninety nine
    And the ghosts of NYC they'll be doin' just fine
    When that little smith & wesson gonna light up the night
    All she show'd when she heard were them cold pearly whites
    None of them kisses dropped down in the hole
    While the midnight sun played the starring role
    Was gonna turn the tide in that black Cadillac
    Next to them little white rails and cold hard facts

    So when you get done dancing and the rain slows down (rain's all gone)
    We'll all meet up at eddy's o'er in chinatown (in the great beyond)

    Now you think you know the answer but you got it all wrong
    And the days too short and the nights too long
    And you wake up to find your worlds falling apart
    In a fifty dollar dress over a broken heart
    Dig in the dirt dance with the dogs
    Roll around on the ground lost in the fog
    Stomp on tomorrow like a big black drum
    Pull your head back and spit at the sun

    So when you get done dancing and the lights go down (sunshine's gone)
    We'll all meet up at eddy's o'er in chinatown (in the great beyond)

    There's a fifty on the table theirs trouble down the line
    200,000 dollars in a bag they'll never find
    You know you'll never see her walking through your door
    & the bars about to close and the sky's about to pour
    You take your last slug and stumble to the street
    Pull the gun out of your pocket and you whisper trick or treat
    And as you pull the trigger beyond a shadow of a doubt
    You hear her whispering your name and then the lights go out

    So when you get done dancing and your six feet underground (sun's all gone)
    We'll all meet up at eddy's o'er in chinatown (in the great beyond)
