Words and Music by: Larry Norman I was walking down the road When I bumped into you I was walking down the road When I bumped into you Hmm, you stopped me You touched me You looked me in the eye I had a feeling that you knew me I decided you must die I pulled out my Thornton special I shot you in the head I threw you in the alleyway And I left you for dead. Then a man with a hat Came up from behind The sky went black And I thought I was blind He put his hand inside my jacket And left a million dollar bills He slipped his hand into my pocket And gave me women and thrills And when I turned around to thank him There was no one there but me And both my hands where filled with sand I was standing by the sea. We had dinner at eight And women at nine The party was great 'Til we ran out of wine There was a knock upon the bedroom door My knees began to shake And this man came in and melted All the candles on my cake He said I, I've come here to escort you It's time for you to go He opened up my body And he took away my soul. I was running down the road I was running down the road I was trying to leave And I saw you all alone In between the thieves And when the lightning flashed I saw somebody hanging from a tree And as I turned to walk away I realized it was me I pulled out my Thornton special I shot me in the head I threw me in the alleyway And I left me for dead. Down the road Down the road Down the road Down the road.
