lyrics

For the past two years, I've been on the run,
People come in middle of the night,
Wielding tommy guns,
I don't know what exactly I have done.

What should I do?,
Where should I go?
I ask if they will hide me,
And all they say is no,
I wanna know if I'll make it out alive.

Who would have thought in this in sleepy city,
Organised crime,
It's such a pity,
Gangsters roaming the streets at night.

The names Sonny Gritts,
I got a price on my head,
I don't know what I've done,
I only know I'm wanted dead,
So much for living the high life in the mob.

Who would have thought in this in sleepy city,
Organised crime,
It's such a pity,
Gangsters roaming the streets at night.

I'm singing you this song,
From a shaded alley,
I'm hoping I might just see this through.

Who would have thought in this sleepy city,
That Sonny Gritts might not be around,
For ever!
