Kentucky Avenue by Tom Waits

Eddie graces buick got 4 bullet holes in the side

Charlie De lisle sittin' at the top of an avocado tree

Mrs Storm'll stab you with a steak knife if you step on her lawn

I got a half pack of lucky strikes man come along with me


Let's fill our pockets with macadamia nuts

Then go over to Bobby good Mansons and jump off the roof

Hilda plays strip poker and her mama's across the street

Joey Navinski says "She put her tongue in his mouth"


Dicky Faulkner's got a switchblade and some goose neck risers

That eucalyptus is a hunchback there's a wind up from the south

Let me tie you up with kite string and I'll show you the scabs on my knee Watch out for the broken glass put your shoes and socks on

And come along with me

Lets follow that fire track I think your house is burnin' down

Then go down to the hobo jungle and kill some rattle snakes with a trowel

We'll break all the windows in the old Anderson place

And steal a bunch of boysenberrys and smear 'em on our face


I'll get a dollar from my mama's purse

And buy that skull and crossbones ring

And you can wear it around your neck on an old piece of string

Then we'll spit on Ronnie Arnold and flip him the bird

And slash the tires on the school bus now don't say a word


I'll take a rusty nail and scratch your initials on my arm

And I'll show you how to sneak up on the roof of the drugstore

I'll take those spokes from your wheelchair and a magpies wings

And I'll tie 'em to your shoulders and your feet


I'll steal a hacksaw from my dad and cut the braces off your legs

And we'll bury them tonight load in the cornfield

Just put a church key in your pocket we'll hop that freight train in the hall

We'll slide all the way down the drain to New Orleans in the fall
