Keep you from sickness or keep you from cold?
Will all your money keep you from madness
Keep you from sadness when you're down in
Cause you'll be down in the gutter, you'll
be bumming for cigarettes
Bumming for nylons in the American Zone
You'll be down in the hole, yeah, down in the
No escape from trouble, nowhere to go
Down in the gutter, begging for cigarettes
Begging forgiveness, all that you know
You're down in the hole after digging the trenches
Looking for cover and finding out there ain't
nowhere, nowhere to go, nowhere, nowhere, nowhere to go
None of your money will buy you forgiveness
None of your jewelry, none of your gold
Your black market cigarettes, your American
I think I know where it leads
Something for nothing, all of your friends
Something for nothing, that's all that they
There's something down in the hole, down, down,
down in the hole
Something down, down, down, down in the hole
Some numbers you play a lot, and then there's a number on this record called
in the Hole which we actually made up (on the spot). And we only cut
it twice, I think.
I think we let the tape run.
We did it twice. And there's other numbers which we did many times.
