lyrics

Oh Lord, I shot my pistol in the heart of town.

I shot it in the air
Just to give the folks a scare;
To let the men in office know I’m mad.
And I emitted a great scream,
And I stomped my weary feet,
And I gave a last hurrah to humanity.

Hurrah! Hurrah!

Well if you see him grinnin’
‘Cause he thinks he’ll get his winnings,
He thinks he gonna catch me in the end.
Oh you can tell him that I’m not runnin’,
You can tell him that I’m flyin’,
And I crossed that big ol’ river with my head held high.

High! High!

Now there’s a man on Fifty-fourth
Who wants to prove his worth,
He’s got a brand new gun and a life’s worth of rage.
I hear his footsteps in my mind,
And ‘cause he doesn’t like my kind,
After three long weeks of hide and seek
He shoots and as he does he shouts,

“Goodbye! Goodbye!”

Well if you come to my town now,
What a sorry sight you’ll see,
There’s people cowerin’ ‘round doin’ just as they’re told.
Oh but if you walk down to the square
At the hour when no one’s there,
If you have a seat and lean your ear
You’ll hear my ghost a-singin’:

“Ooo! Ooo!”


Oh Lord, do you recognize your world?

about

Yo Soy Indigo Prague, Czech Republic

A mish-mosh of six wonderfully weird, international musicians with blazing solos, soulful melodies, deep lyrical expression, and an ample serving of humor. The band calls itself "freak-folk-jazz", which just scratches the surface of the free-flowing genres they explore. ... more
