jeremy messersmith – dillinger eyes lyrics

Loading...

i found honest work and lord knows i tried
i found honest work and lord knows i tried
robbed a bank and ran from the fuzz
they asked the teller just who i was
she said “i don’t know, but he had john dillinger’s eyes!”
for five long years i was wanted by the fbi
for five long years i was wanted by the fbi
i was shooting pool at the hall
saw my poster up on the wall
“ain’t that you? you got john dillinger’s eyes!”
i caught one in my chest and two in my thigh
i caught one in my chest and two in my thigh
i saw a man rush to my side
took a photograph as i died
and all because i was born with john dillinger’s eyes!
that newspaper man won the pulitzer prize
that newspaper man won the pulitzer prize
he keeps it by his bed on a shelf
but one thing that he’ll never tell
every day he thanks god for john dillinger’s eyes!
