Phil Ochs – The Ballad Of Sonny Liston lyrics

Now I don't know how sonny liston died
Maybe he killed himself, maybe he even tried
Or maybe the boys weren't satisfied
I don't know, I'm sorry I just don't know

Sonny, sonny sonny, why'd you have to take a dive
If you don't then you won't stay alive...
