Bringing Home the Freshest Kill

Posts in the Dave Alvin category

Such a great song. Geez — was it written especially for my life, my neighborhood, my marriage…everything I do (with the exception of smoking cigarettes)???

She’s waitin’ for me

When I get home from work

Oh, but things ain’t just the same

She turns out the light

and cries in the dark

Won’t answer when I call her name

On the stairs I smoke a

Cigarette alone

Mexican kids are shootin’

Fireworks below

Hey baby, it’s the Fourth of July

Hey baby, it’s the Fourth of July

_____________________________

She gives me her cheek

When I want her lips

But I don’t have the strength to go

On the lost side of town

In a dark apartment

We gave up trying so long ago

Whatever happened I

Apologize

So dry your tears and baby

Walk outside, it’s the Fourth of July

Hey baby, Baby take a walk outside
