Sid and Billy rolled a drunk in the park They took a low ride up to the station With two flaggons of brown musket and a carton of Winfields They were off to see some more of the nation The sun shone along the tracks The red rattlers shook like sense-a-round But Sid and Billy they felt fuck all Inside the cells of a black and white town Repeat Chorus Any corrections or comments to: email-removed
