lyrics

Slaughterhouse Blues

Beg, borrow steal
It all goes to the dealer
That much we all come to know
And the deck is always stacked
Cuz the dealer’s showing Jack
And he’s surely he got the Ace in tow
Well there’s bound to be a reckoning
Out there a-heckling
In the dark of some distant row
But I aim to make a stand
Just as long as I can
Like Davy Crocket t the Alamo

Pre Chorus:
Don’t you try to wake me
Or even try to shake me
I know how to toe that line
But resistance is futile
And the alternative is brutal
I just need a little bit more time
Don’t you try to wake me
Or even try to shake me
I know how to walk that line…

Chorus:
We all trying to find a way to
Stay out the slaughterhouse, stay out the slaughterhouse
We all trying to find a way to
Stay out the slaughterhouse, stay out the slaughterhouse

Say hey there mama
You’s a real snake charmer
Can I be your second choice
I ain’t got no plan
But I’m a mighty big fan
Of the righteously unemployed
Sure I might be chicken
But I can take a licking
When m back is up against the wall
But I don’t do rings
Or other social kinda things
And I prefer to keep the talk real small

Stay out the slaughterhouse / Stay out the slaughterhouse…
