How 'bout a murder mystery?

lyrics

Cold blooded two lovers collide
One with my gun and the other was mine
And it's a hard living at the end of the line
When the line is the barrel of my forty-five

So I took a bus down to Raleigh town
Where I ran into a man said you was messin' around
Well you two-faced, two-timin' son of a gun
I put a bullet through his head

Now I'm a man, I'm a man on the run


Hot blooded I put my finger to her lips
I felt the tears as they ran under my fingertips
I'm a backslider with a heart of gold
A head of boiling water and a good hand to fold

And when I finally boiled over well my eyes glowed red
One finger itchy, oh and one man dead
Well you two-faced, two-timin' son of a gun
I put a bullet through his head

Now I'm a man, I'm a man on the run
