John Hiatt - Death By Misadventure Lyrics

Align:    
  • Well, harry had a good job working for the secret service
  • He had a wife and kids at home who made him awful nervous
  • Hed never done a damn thing you could call experimental
  • And he had this aching feeling that his life was accidental
  • So one day he burned his pinstripe suit and his leather shoulder holster
  • He snapped a polaroid and made a giant wanted poster
  • He took it to a print shop and ordered up a thousand flyers
  • And walked next door to the laundromat and blew his brains out in the drier
  • And the tag on his toe read: death by misadventure
  • Aint that some way to go? death by misadventure
  • Well, harrys wife estella took this matter rather lightly
  • She could have cried and cried but then her looks might come unsightly
  • She thought about her wardrobe and how much it was outdated
  • And how this trumped up family thing was vastly overrated
  • Her kids both turned against her and they took to drugs and stealing
  • Some junkie killed em both for two dime bags they were dealing
  • And sitting home alone disgusted by it all
  • She blew the sole survivor off with ninety nembutals
  • And the tag on her toe read: death by misadventure
  • Aint that some way to go? death by misadventure
  • So be careful how you choose your path and who you pick to go with
  • Some folks they take to living fast while some prefer a slow death
  • Some folks get confused and never quite know how theyre going
  • When youre laid out on that slab were all the worse for knowing
  • That the tag on your toe reads: death by misadventure
  • What a silly way to go. death by misadventure
