Todd Snider – The Highland Street Incident lyrics

Some guy said to some other guy behind closed doors
"Don't even know how long I've been awake anymore
I know what we're out of and you do too
Look around, we're down to nothing but me and you
We lost everything we stole, everything we had
It's not that bad, though, it's not that bad"

"We'll be buying all our shit back when your cousin gets out
That's only going to be a couple weeks from now
You know what I'm thinking 'cause you're thinking it too
It was harder to imagine than it was to do
In spite of all of your worry last night went okay
That man just threw his money up and ran away"

"Did, did we get arrested? No, we did not
We didn't shoot anyone, didn't get shot
Didn't hurt anyone, at least not a lot
And we got what we wanted, we got what we wanted"

"You're right I could kill someone, I don't care
But that's ain't the way it's going down tonight, I swear
We'll just walk on up to Highland Street behind the bar
In the back through the alley where they park the cars
It will go down just as easy as it did last night
We'll be back here in an hour hidin' out of sight"

"Did, did we get arrested? No, we did not
We didn't shoot anyone, didn't get shot
Didn't hurt anyone, at least not a lot
And we got what we wanted
[Incomprehensible], we got what we wanted"

"Oh, hey stand right here behind me, buddy, this is the place
Hold the blue bandanna up to cover your face
Yes, it's loaded but that's only for security
I ain't be shootin' anyone that ain't shootin' at me
Shut up, I think, I hear somebody coming, man
Shut up I think, I hear"

"Run, man, run, run, man, run
Only going be two or three weeks from now
'Til your cousin gets out
Run, man, run, run, man, run, run, oh, ooh"
