Lyrics

Sugarboy (and the Pearly Gun)

Sugarboy was born by the railroad tracks
Hit the sreets runnin' and never looked back
Never backed down always ready to fight
Don't give a damn about a wrong or a right

Sugar robbed a bar with a pearly gun
He said, "Nobody move an' don't nobody run."
The bartenders name was Baltimore Jack
Sugarboy shot him, straight in the back

Chorus:
Run Sugarboy run, you murdered a man with a gun
You got nowhere to hide, nowhere to go
Better get yourself down to Mexico

Sugar stole a car that was parked out back
It was a black El Dorado Cadillac
Broke the window with his pearly gun
Hotwired the motor and away he run

Now everyone that knew old Baltimore Jack
Knew he kept his bulldog in his Cadillac
Sugar never knew a minute of fear
`til he saw those two eyes in the rearview mirror

Chorus:
Run Sugarboy run, you murdered a man with a gun
You got nowhere to hide, nowhere to go
Better get yourself down to Mexico

All the police found by the light of dawn
Was a pool of blood and a pearly gun
The moral of this story is a matter of fact
Don`t kill a man named Baltimore Jack

Chorus:
Run Sugarboy run, you murdered a man with a gun
You got nowhere to hide, nowhere to go
Never goin' down to Mexico
