Story Behind the Song

What too often happens to cocaine addicts.

Lyrics

Sammy The Crack Addict

Sammy the crack addict
Lit his pipe outside the Red Parrot bar.
A wisp of smoke rose up,
Like a slow lazy rocket.
He watched himself take off
And he walked alone.

Sammy the crack addict
Told Ralph the loan shark he would have to wait
For the next disability check.
Like a slow lazy rocket
He watched himself take off
And he walked alone.

Sammy the crack addict,
Livin on the edge,
Livin large
Feeling he's invulnerable,
Feeling he's invulnerable,
Feels like he'll never die.

Sammy the crack addict
Took two blows to the back of the head,
Felt three knife blades in his back,
Looked up at the sky and fell down dead.
Like a slow lazy rocket,
Life left Sammy in his 27th year.
He watched himself rise up..
