WITH A GUN Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Pretzel Logic

I could be wrong but I have seen your face before
You were the man that I saw running from his door
You owed him money but you gave him something more
With a gun
With a gun
You will be what you are just the same
Did you pay the other man with the piece in your hand
And leave him lying in the rain?

You were the founders of the clinic on the hill
Until he caught you with your fingers in the till
He slapped your hand so you settled up your bill

With a gun
With a gun
You will be what you are just the same
Did you pay the other man with the piece in your hand
And leave him lying in the rain?

When you're born to play the fool
And you've seen all the western movies
Woe to the one who does you wrong
You hide in the bushes
Murder the man
With Luger in hand

I understood that you will soon be leavin' town
Don't try to call me when they finally run you down
Just give fair warning any time you come around

With a gun
With a gun
You will be what you are just the same
Did you pay the other man with the piece in your hand
And leave him lying in the rain?

Powerful. If someone could only write a movie which would have that is the intro (or ending) that person would have achieved greatness.

Michael: my thoughts exactly! I have the same feeling about the Never take me alive song AND the Pearl of the qtr one. These guys paint pictures, man

I wouldn't call SD underrated because of their string of hits, but songs like this that remain hidden make them under-appreciated. Nearly every song on their early albums are essential listening.
