I get a constant busy signal when I call you on the phone
I get a strong uneasy feeling you're not sitting there alone
I'm having nasty nasty visions and baby you're in every one, yeah
And I'm so afraid I'm gonna find you with that so called smokin gun

Maybe you want to end it, you've had your fill of my kind of fun
But you don't know how to tell me and you know that I'm not that dumb
I put 2 and 1 together and you know that's not an easy sum
And I know just where to find you with that well known smokin gun

Instrumental bridge

I'm standing here bewildered, I can't remember just what I've done
I can hear the sirens whining, my eyes blinded by the sun
I know that I should be running, my heart's beating just like a drum
Now they've knocked me down and takin it, that still hot and smokin gun

Yeah still hot and smokin gun
Yes they've taken it
Still hot and smokin gun
Oh they've taken it
Still hot and smokin gun
Knocked me down, taken it

    I really, really like this song and they play it at Cities and is about the only one that's really cool, of course Roseanna isn't bad either.

    she cheated.she lied.she died!!! i mean like what more can i say,John.
    She was dealing with a man in love and unfortunately as wonderful as love can be at times,it(love) can make a one very emotional to the point of "instability,"and should that occur "love"just turns crazy.
