Nell’album intitolato “Key Lime Pie”

Key Lime Pie
Well I lost an eye in Mexico
Lost two teeth where I don't know
People see me comin' and they move to the other side of the road

I robbed a liquor store or two
Made myself at home a few times
Borrowed myself a car when I needed it

I got me a shack at the bottom of the road
Fixin' cars and givin' tows
Spend all my money on the lottery

When I win the lottery, gonna buy all girls on my block
A color TV and a bottle of French perfume
When I win the lottery, gonna donate half my money to the city
So they have to name a street or a school or a park after me
When I win the lottery

Never run a flag up a pole
Like Mr. Red, White, and Blue down the road
But I never called myself a hero for killing a known communist

Now I can walk into any old bar
Find a fight without looking too hard
But I never killed someone I don't know just 'cause someone told me to

And when I win the lottery, gonna buy the house next to
Mr. Red, White and Blue
And when I win the lottery, gonna buy Post 306 American Legion,
Paint it red with five gold stars
When I win the lottery

When the end comes to this old world
The rights will cry and the rest will curl up
And God won't take the time to sort
your ashes from mine

'Cause we zig and zag between good and bad
Stumble and fall on right and wrong
'Cause the tumbling dice and the luck of the draw just leads us on

And when I win the lottery, gonna buy all the girls on my block
Silver-plated six shooters and a quart of the finest highland scotch
'Cause when I win the lottery, the rights will shake their heads and say that
God is good but surely works in mysterious ways
When I win the lottery
