Sweet child in time you'll see the line
The line that's drawn between good and the bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying, taking toll
If you've been bad, lord I bet you have
And you've not been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes
Bow your head
Wait for the ricochet

I wanna hear you scream

Sweet child in time you'll see the line
The line that's drawn between, good and the bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying, taking toll
If you've been bad, lord I bet you have
And you've not been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes
Bow your head
Wait for the ricochet

I gotta hear you scream

Oh, god, oh, no don't, oh, ain't gonna do it, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no

    One of the great keyboard-driven pieces of rock music. There are so few of them; the Doors "Riders on the Storm", the Horslips, "The Power and the Glory", the Blue Oyster Cult's "Joan Crawford". But this has got to be up there in the top two or three. Still capable ofd sending a shiver down the spine even though I've known ald loved this piece for over thirty years.

    Chose to be good. If you are not, like most people, you will feel god's punishment at some point in your life
