Subterranean Homesick Blues (Revisited)

Oswald's on the door steps
Mixing with his new friends
Truly's on the pavement
Lookin to change the government
The man in the trench coat
Badge out, hat doffed
Lookin' for a free phone
Wants to get a report off
Look out kid
It's nothin' you did
But God knows when
this will be pinned
Better duck down in the theater seat
Don't wanna draw the heat
A man in a white coat, at the candy bar
Likes to talk, but he's too busy fillin' jars

Calvery comes a-runnin' up
Face full of make-up
Talkin' that the head shot
blew a hole but
no one knows anyway
Calvery says that many say
The killers got clean away
New orders from the D.A. Look out kid
Don't matter what you did
Cops are gonna nab you
Don't try low blows
Aim for that big nose
He carry around a throwdown
That's how it goes
Watch for plain clothes
You don't need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows

Oh, god bless, con fess
Palmprint with an ink well
No bail, hard to tell
Whose story is gonna sail
Tried in print, hard as flint
Walk it back, write it off
Get jailed by a jerkoff
Join the framed, that's their aim
Look out kid
You're gonna get hit
By losers, cheaters
Six-time users
Hang around the Carousel
Girl with nuthin but a parasol
Lookin' for a new fool
Don't follow leaders, oilmen or cattle breeders

Oh, get born, be shorn
Pay the price, prison stripes
Learn to dance, get dressed, get blessed
Become a snitch
Please her, please him, buy favors
Don't steal, don't waver
Eight years of schoolin'
And they send you to Moscow then to Minsk
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
Better jump down a sewer
Find the real killer
Watch out for Feebies
Try to avoid the feces
Don't want to be a fall-guy
Watch the Big Lies
As the Organ grinds
And the monkey takes home the prize.
