J. bon jovi

Hey patty garrett thats what I used to call you
They tell me you want me but I hear theyve got you
They made you a lawman with a badge made of silver
They paid you some money to sell them my soul

But you say this aint about me, this aint about you
Or the good and the bad times weve both been through
When the lines between brothers and justice have changed
You do what youve got to cause you cant walk away

I wonder what would have happened
If you were the killer
And I was the hero
Would things be the same
Or would I have traded
Your life for my own life
Would I have paid
Your debts in your place

But this aint about me, this aint about you
Or the good and the bad times weve both been through
When the lines between brothers and justice have changed
You do what youve got to cause you cant walk away

Blood money
Thats what I call it
cause money for blood aint no fair exchange
Blood money
Bought and then sold you
But your conscience is all you can take to your grave
