SMUGGLERS BLUES Glenn Frey There's trouble on the street tonight, I can feel it in my bones I had a premonition that he should not go alone I knew the gun was loaded, but I didn't think he'd kill Everything exploded, and the blood began to spill So baby, here's your ticket, and the suitcase in your hand Here's a little money, now we'll do it just the way we planned You be cool for twenty hours, and I'll pay you twenty grand I'm sorry it went down like this, but someone had to lose It's the nature of the business, it's the smugglers' blues The sailors and the pilots, the soldiers and the law The payoffs and the ripoffs and the things nobody saw Don't matter if it's heroin, cocaine or hash, You've got to carry weapons 'cause you always carry cash There's lots of shady characters and lots of dirty deals Every name's an alias in case somebody squeals It's the lure of easy money, it's got a very strong appeal Perhaps you'd understand it better standing in my shoes It's the ultimate enticement, it's the smugglers' blues You see it in the headlines, you hear it every day They say they're gonna stop it, but it doesn't go away They move it through Miami and sell it in LA They hide it up in Telluride, I mean it's here to stay It's propping up the governments in Columbia and Peru You ask any D.A., man, they'll say there's nothing we can do From the office of the president right down to me and you Me and you It's a losing proposition, but one you can't refuse It's the politics of contraband, it's the smugglers' blues
