LEADFOOT ANGELS

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


            I.  in the moonlight,
                father said, "son,
                if you go out,
                leave me your gun."
                by the moonlight,
                grandfather said, "boy,
                leadfoot angels
                fly without joy."

       CHORUS:  scene of the crime,
                who cares?
                it's a desperate climb
                downstairs.
                I've seen the homes
                of the brave.
                they live in jail
                or the grave.

           II.  where do the youth gangs
                go when they're old?
                when do speeders
                run out of road?
                if life stops you,
                the ending is hard.
                if you slow down,
                you skip that part.

                (repeat chorus)

          III.  I was walking.
                they were so brisk.
                swift snowballing
                of ultimate risk.
                'round the corner,
                red lights flash;
                blackened mourners,
                pyres of ash.

                (repeat chorus)
