West End Riot


West End Riot

There's a kid who was born and was raised in the west
There's a kid from the east who never really fit in with the rest
Every week they would meet in the street with their friends
With the guns that they made and the caps that they stole
They would fight to the death

This time
We'll have victory
Last time
Ended in defeat
Our town
Becomes a battleground (hey)
Battleground (hey)
Battleground

West end riot (riot)
West end riot (riot)
We'll be here next saturday
With our guns and our heads held high
So listen up boys
You'd better not cry this time

See a bum on the street that you think you recognize
Young kid never looked so bad when he was only 4 foot high
6 o'clock running home I don't wanna be late
Another saturday of sun and war
Shared with our mates

This time
We'll have victory
Last time
Ended in defeat
Our town
Becomes a battleground (hey)
Battleground (hey)
Battleground

West end riot (riot)
West end riot (riot)
We'll be here next saturday
With our guns and our heads held high
So listen up boys
You'd better not cry this time

Boys will be boys playin' up
And making lots of noise
Never used to talk about the future
Never thought that we'd have to care so
West end riot!

There's a man that was born in the west workin' at a factory
There's a man from the east who now runs the whole company
How they've grown on their own, not like the kids they used to be
Saturdays of sun and war are just fond memories

West end riot (riot)
West end riot (riot)
We'll be here next saturday
With our guns and our heads held high
So listen up boys, you'd better not cry
So listen up boys, you'd better not cry
So listen up boys, you'd better not cry this time


Living in Sin

Not one for violence
Not one to steal
Not one to break the law
Or make a deal

Cos innocence has left me long ago
My heart has now forgotten how to love

I became blinded by my goddamned life
I couldn't see or hear or tell wrong from right
Cos yesterday is just a memory
I close my eyes then it's gone

So how will I know (how will I know)
When the war is over
How will I know (how will I know)
When it doesn't matter
What I've done or where I've been
So till that day I'm living in sin

I've seen it once
I've seen it twice
Won't happen again
Not in this life

Cos yesterday is just a memory
I close my eyes then it's gone

So how will I know (how will I know)
When the war is over
How will I know (how will I know)
When it doesn't matter
What I've done or where I've been
So, till that day
Till that day
Till that day
I'm living in sin

How will I know
When the war is over
Tell me, how will I know
When it doesn't matter

Where I've been
Where I've been
Where I've been

Not one for violence
Not one to steal
Not one to break the law
Or make a deal

Cos innocence has left me long ago
My heart has now forgotten how to love

So how will I know (how will I know)
When the war is over
How will I know (how will I know)
When it doesn't matter
What I've done or where I've been
So, till that day
Till that day
Till that day
I'm living in sin


Train Kept A-Rollin' (Live)

I caught a train, I met a dame
She was a hella, and a real gone dame
She was pretty, from New York City
And we trucked on down
That old fairlane
With a heave! And a ho!
Well, I just couldn't let her go

Get along, sweet little woman, get along
And you'll be on your way
With a heave! And a ho!
Well, I just couldn't let her go

One Time!

We made a stop in Albequerque
She must'a thought I was a real kind jerk
Got off the train, in El Paso
Felt so good Jack, I couldn't let her go
Get along
Well, I just couldn't let her go

Well! The train kept a-rollin' all night long
The train kept a-rollin' all night long
The train kept a-rollin' all night long
The train kept a-rollin' all night long
With a heave! And a ho!
Well, I just couldn't let her go

We made a stop in Albequerque
She must'a thought I was a real kind jerk
Got off the train, in El Paso
Felt so good Jack, I couldn't let her go
Get along
Well, I just couldn't let her go

Well! The train kept a-rollin' all night long
The train kept a-rollin' all night long
I said the train kept a-rollin' all night long
You know the train kept a-rollin' all night long
With a heave! And a ho!
Well, I just couldn't let her go
With a heave! And a ho!
Well, I just couldn't let her go
One more time, with a heave! And a ho!
I just couldn't let her GO!!!

West End Riot (Live in Houston)

There's a kid from the east who never really fit in with the rest
