What do you characters reckon?
Here's my nomination.
Richmond Fontaine "$87 And A Guilty Conscience That Gets Worse The Longer I Go"
Here are the lyrics, and if anyone can work out what the ?????s should be please let me know....
We were in Albuquerque at the fights. The referee wouldn’t stop the bout. The kid’s blood hit the fifth row. How he didn’t die that night, well I don’t know. That was the night I gave up the fight.
Driving down 25 towards Las Cruces, we saw a flipped-over semi. We pushed in the windshield and pulled the guy out. Left him on the side of the road, when my friend said we had to leave before the cops showed. What he’d done I didn’t know. Just hoped the guy was still breathing as we disappeared down the road. I felt so bad.
Twenty miles out of Yuma, we picked up a girl. Saddest eyes and rotten teeth, said she was only sixteen. ?????? got a room, with one bed he got a room.
“What the fuck do you think you’re doing?”
“What’s it matter to you?” He said. Then he let the girl in.
I started walking down the road, called the police from a payphone. $87 and bad nerves, $87 dollars and a bag of bones. $87 and a guilty conscience that gets worse the longer I go.
