Bruce Cockburn – Peggy's Kitchen Wall lyrics

Crashing in the kitchen, noises in the hall
Roll over and go back to sleep -- it's just a dream, that's all
So how come the window's broken? What caused the glass to fall?
And who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?
Police arrive -- muddy up the floor
Dig out half the plaster -- it's A. 38 for sure
Kick the neighbour's door in, saying better tell it all
Who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?
Blaster on the back porch shaking up the lane
They're drinking gin and joking -- laughter falling down like rain
Everybody wears a halo -- never saw nothing at all
So who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall
Toronto July 1983
