Song Lyrics

There`s trouble on the streets tonight,

I can feel it in my bones.

I had a premonition,

That he should not go alone.

I knew the gun was loaded,

But I didn`t think he`d kill.

Everything exploded,

And the blood began to spill.

So baby, here`s your ticket,

Put the suitcase in your hand.

Here`s a little money now,

Do it just the way we planned.

You be cool for twenty hours

And I`ll pay you twenty grand.

I`m sorry it went down like this,

And someone had to lose,

It`s the nature of the business,

It`s the smuggler`s blues.

Smuggler`s Blues

The sailors and pilots,

The soldiers and the law,

The pay offs and the rip offs,

And the things nobody saw.

No matter if it`s heroin, cocaine, or hash,

You`ve got to carry weapons

Cause you always carry cash.

There`s lots of shady characters,

Lots of dirty deals.

Ev`ry name`s an alias

In case somebody squeals.

It`s the lure of easy money,

It`s gotta very strong appeal.

Perhaps you`d understand it better

Standin` in my shoes,

It`s the ultimate enticement,

It`s the smuggler`s blues,

Smuggler`s blues.

See it in the headlines,

You hear it ev`ry day.

They say they`re gonna stop it,

But it doesn`t go away.

They move it through Miami, sell it in L.A.,

They hide it up in Telluride,

I mean it`s here to stay.

It`s propping up the governments in Columbia and Peru,

You ask any D.E.A. man,

He`ll say There`s nothin` we can do,

From the office of the President,

Right down to me and you, me and you.

It`s a losing proposition,

But one you can`t refuse.

It`s the politics of contraband,

It`s the smuggler`s blues,

Smuggler`s blues.
