Machine Gun Blues As Heard On:

Machine Gun Blues Lyrics

Well I'm a gangster 1934
Junkies, Winos, Pimps & Whores
And all you men, women and kids
best get 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 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've 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 #1
I'm sorry for all the things that I've done
If indeed we do cross path, it's nothing personal

And I'm already gone, I've 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

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
