(Verse I)
Well, I'm a gangster 1934,
Junkies, winos, pimps & whores,
And all you men, women & kids,
Best get out the way,
I just left your town took all your loot,
Wore a pink carnation and a pinstripe suit,
Hopped up V8 Ford...
And some two-tone shoes...

(Chorus I)
And I'm already gone,
I left a pool of blood & sorrow,
I've got the machine gun blues...

(Verse ii)
I'll be out of here 'fore the break of dawn,
Hit the highway; smoke a big cigar,
I gotta stop and bury the cash,
Then get some more,
There's only one thing on my mind,
That's making it 'cross that ol' state line,
But I bet a hail of barraging bullets will be there for me...

(Chorus ii)
And I'm already gone,
I've left a path of their destruction,
I've got the machine gun blues,
Already gone,
My life will soon be through,
I've got the machine gun blues...

(Verse iii; Spoken)
"I'm public enemy no. 1,
I'm sorry for all the things that I've done,
If indeed we do cross paths,
It's nothing personal. "

(Chorus iii)
And I'm already gone,
I left a trail of devastation,
I've got the machine gun blues,
Already gone,
My life will soon be through,
I've got the machine gun blues...
