Well I'm a gangster 1934
Junkies, winos, pimps and whores
And all you men, women and kids
Best get of out the way

I just left your town, took all your loot,
Bought a pink carnation and a pinstripe suit,
A hopped-up V8 Ford and some two-tone shoes

And I'm already gone,
I like the pool of the blood and sorrow,
I've got the Machine Gun Blues

I'll be outta here for the break of dawn,
I'll hit the highway, smoke a big cigar,
Got to stop and bury the cash, then get some more

There's only one thing on my mind,
That's making it across that ol' state line,
But I've a hell of avenging bullets,
Waiting there for me

And I'm already gone,
I left a path of pure destruction,
I've got the Machine Gun Blues

I'm already gone,
My life will soon be through,
I've got the Machine Gun Blues

I'm public enemy number one
I'm sorry for all the things that I've done
If indeed we do cross paths, it's nothing personal

And I'm already gone,
I left a trail of devastation,
I've got the Machine Gun Blues

I'm already gone,
My life will soon be through,
I've got the Machine Gun Blues

I'll be out of here for the break of dawn,
I'll hit the highway, smoke a big cigar,
Got to stop and bury the cash, then get some more

There's only one thing on my mind,
That's making it across that ol' state line,
But I've a hell of avenging bullets,
Waiting there for me

And I'm already gone,
I left a path of pure destruction,
I've got the Machine Gun Blues

I'm already gone,
My life will soon be through,
I've got the Machine Gun Blues
