he was sittin in the lounge of the empire hotel
he was drinkin for diversion, he was thinkin for himself
a little money ridin on the maple leafs
along comes this lady in sleeves

she says
let me sit down, you know,
drinkin alones a shame,
its a shame, its a cryin shame
G                         F                    C
look at those jokers glued to that damn hockey game

hey, honey, you got lots of cash,
bring us round a bottle and well have some laughs
Bb                             G              C

she says,
      F                                         C

       G                        F                C

    Bb                            G              C

we had a little money once,
they were pushin through a four lane highway
government gave us three thousand dollars,
    F                        C
you shoulda seen it fly away

first he bought a fifty-seven Biscayne, he put it in the ditch
he drunk up all the rest, that son of a b***h
    Bb                         G              C
his bloods bad whiskey; i was raised on robbery

you know you aint bad lookin,
i like the way you hold your drinks
come home with me honey,
        F                              C
i aint askin for no full-length mink

hey, where you goin?
dont go yet, your glass aint empty and we just met
youre mean when youre loaded;
      G              C
i was raised on robbery
