Kris Kristofferson – Star Spandgled Bummer lyrics
Ring anvil for the deal
We dealt us by mistake
Our angel made of steel
Is big enough to break
Cause the rust is at his heel
And I swear I seen him shakin'
But who'll be here to bring this body home

The cabaret was crowded
As her bed on payday night
Sammy hit a soldier
And the fools begun to fight
We scattered like the shadows
In the early morning light

But she remained to bring the body home
For longer than it seemed
She loved some honest man
Who chased her wildest dreams
And rode her like the wind
And they forged the bloody chains
For some wounds too deep for mendin'
But she was there to bring the body home

The barker stood there smilin'
As he beckoned us inside
To see the shining creature that had
Grown too big to hide
Look here, he said, he's harmless
And we wished he wasn't lyin'
Cause few remained to bring the body home

Ring anvil for the deal
We dealt us by mistake
Our angel made of steel
Is big enough to break
Cause the rust is at his heel
And I swear I've seen him shakin'
And we'll be here to bring the body home
