Are you serious? Lol! No hidden meanings in this one. Stills shoots straight from the barrel. Came back from nam where the us military taught him to fly low below the treeline to keep from being seen and being shot down. Came back to us after war. No job, no money, hell. Not even any admiration or respect for his service. But he did learn one very rare skill over in nam. So he used that skill to become a drug smuggler for hire. Making the fast cash. Large coin. But playing a dangerous game. And knows it. Cuz folks, "easy" money aint never "easy". Could get shot and killed for your cargo or for your pay. These aint exactly eagle scouts you dealin' with in the big time drug game. Hell, you can get shot and killed over rather little even in the small time drug game if you happen to come across a desperate addict. Not to mention the risk of spending the rest of your life in prison. Keep rolling the dice and sooner or later you gonna be dead or in jail son. One or the other. But the guy in this song. In the back of his mind he knows all that to be true. But he takes on that invincible mindset that he is untouchable and aint ever gonna get caught or shot. His woman wants him to quit while he's ahead. But he always just has to take that "one more job" and do "one more run". Addicted to not only the lure of the fast cash. But obviously, also addicted to the adrenalin rush, as well as the ego boost. Very cool song. Great concept and lyrics. Well written, well played, well sung. One of my faves form stills if not my top pick. Rock on people.
