BLOOD MONEY

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  put on a hard hat,
                 inhale some lead
                 where the sky is green
                 and the money you earn is red.
                 run to the bank;
                 it's on the main artery.
                 give transfusions to
                 the local economy with...

        CHORUS:  blood money, blood money, blood money.
                 the vampire's on his way for
                 blood money, blood money, blood money.
                 he'll be here any day.

            II.  have a cigar,
                 a trash fire in your face,
                 shrinking every vein
                 it can trace.
                 paying the toll,
                 Tobacco Road ain't free.
                 Senator Helms
                 wants a government subsidy for...

                 /// REPEAT CHORUS ///

           III.  I'm assembling guns
                 and earning my own pay.
                 I loaded sixteen tons
                 on a truck that drove away,
                 bound for barefoot
                 bodies in the mud.
                 blood money's easy
                 when it's somebody else's blood.

                 /// REPEAT CHORUS TWICE ///
