about

A song about an incident in S.A. where a man with mental problems presented himself to hospital but 24 hours later after he still hadn’t been admitted he had an episode where police were called to restrain him.

lyrics

If lucks a fortune, baby I am broke
I feel like I am in prison they think I am a joke
Got turned away from A & E an innocent man
My life’s like tumble weed just blowing on the sand

It wasn’t by chance those cowboys cut me down
I have seen my share of lunatics in this, two horse town
According to the victims, who had my hands tied
I’d been drinking whisky popping pills on the side

They said they wanted to talk to me they spoke with there fists
I’ll never forget the sounds of those boots and that hiss
Damn rattlesnakes

Well the crow it gathered round and it struck up a pose
I was cast somewhere between the devil and a rose
The man in the van came and took me away
Threw my arse in prison, no crime was made

Now many a time, the stories been told
How I broke the curfew how I strayed from the fold
The troops from the future said I was too bold
But I was just a sick man coming in the from the cold.

They said they wanted to talk to me they spoke with their fists
I’ll never forget the sounds of those boots
They said they wanted to talk to me they spoke with their fists
I’ll never forget the sound of those boots, and that hiss

Damn rallesnakes, rattle snakes, rattle snakes
Damn rattlesnakes kiss.
