Alice Cooper – Desperado lyrics

I’m a gambler

And I’m a runner

But you knew that

When you lay down

I’m a picture

Of ugly stories

I’m a killer

And I’m a clown

Step into the street by sundown

Step into your last goodbye

You’re a target just by living

Twenty dollars will make you die

I wear lace

And I wear black leather

My hands are lightning upon my gun

My shots are clean

And my, my shots are final

My shots are deadly

And when it’s done

You’re as stiff as my smoking barrel

You’re as dead as a desert night

You’re a notch

And I’m a legend

You’re at peace

And I must hide

Tell me where the hell I’m going

Let my bones fall in the dust

Can’t you hear that ghost that’s calling

As my Colt begins to rust

In the dust

I’m a killer

I’m a clown

I’m a priest

That’s gone to town
