junco partner lyrics – clash

down the road came a junco partner
boy, he was loaded as can be
he was knocked out, knocked out loaded
he was a’wobblin’ all over the street

singing 6 months ain’t no sentence
yeah, and one year ain’t no time
i was born in angola
serving 14 to 99

well i wish i had me one million dollars
oh, one million to call my own
i would raise me, and say, “grow for me baby”
raise me a tobacco farm

take a walk, take a walk, junco partner

well, when i had me a great deal of money
yeah, i had mighty good things all over town
now i ain’t got no more money
all of my good friends they’re putting me down

so now i gotta p*wn my ratchet and pistol
yeah i’m gonna p*wn my watch and chain
i would have p*wned my sweet gabriella
but the smart girl she wouldn’t sign her name


well i’m down, yes i’m getting thirsty
pour me out a good beer, when i’m dry
just, just give me whisky, when i’m thirsty
give me headstone when i die.

down the road.
