Rory Gallagher – Loanshark Blues lyrics
Give me til Monday, that's only a day or two
Give me til Monday, that's only a day or two
I'll pay you back with interest, if it's the last thing that I do yeah
I'll pay you back with interest, if it's the last thing that I do yeah

Give me til Monday, that's only a day away
Give me til Monday, that's only a day away
I'm down on my knees, Ive got one foot in the grave
I'm down on my knees, I ve got one foot in the grave

I've got the Loanshark Blues I've got the Loanshark Blues
Give me an offer I can't refuse

My wife needs shoes my kids must eat feel so cold, I can't feel my feet
Can't get my hands on one thin dime gonna turn to a life of crime
No work here, so I walk the street sign on the door, feel I'm beat
I known you run Pier 15 you got a grip on all my dreams

I got the Loanshark Blues the Loanshark Blues
Give me an offer I can't refuse

Give me til Monday, that s only a day or two
Give me til Monday, that's only a day or two
I'll pay you back with interest, if it's the last thing that I do
I'll pay you back with interest, if it s the last thing that I do

I got the Loanshark blues the Loanshark Blues
Give me an offer I can't refuse

The roofs got holes, see the sky can't get straight and I have tried
I'm in your debt, I'm well aware I'll break the law 'cause I don't care
Living on a knife edge I have been but I'm to though to just give in
Moving on down with the longshore men on the docks we're locked out again

I got the Loanshark Blues the Loanshark Blues
Give me an offer I can't refuse

I got the Loanshark Blues the Loanshark Blues
Give me an offer I can't refuse
