The Rooster

Posted the video down below. One line really grabbed me: They spit on me in my home land. Christmas time of 1973 some woman in the Dallas Fort Worth airport gave me a look of such hate I still vividly remember it. My crime? Wearing my uniform and waiting for a flight back to Philly. Fuck her. With a pineapple.

Aint found a way to kill me yet
Eyes burn with stinging sweat
Seems every path leads me to nowhere
Wife and kids household pet
Army green was no safe bet
The bullets scream to me from somewhere

Here they come to snuff the rooster
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he aint gonna die
No, no, no, ya know he aint gonna die

Walkin tall machine gun man
They spit on me in my home land
Gloria sent me pictures of my boy
Got my pills gainst mosquito death
My buddys breathin his dyin breath
Oh God please wont you help me make it through

Here they come to snuff the rooster
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he aint gonna die
No, no, no ya know he aint gonna die
