Intro G Am D Am x2 Verse 1 G Am D G He's only six years old, that old Killer died. G Am D G Put him down in a great big hole, I'm filling up all the time. G Am D G See the buildings rise up to the sky, Parking meters, traffic cops. G Am D G You'd best watch your record son, they'll come an' lock you up. Chorus G D I've been working all night. C G I go along into the day. G D Ain't got much money now. C Am7 G Got the time ahead, I got the time ahead to pay Smoke and lightning, dressed to kill. Don't talk to strangers, that's all you know. Forty years of Sun death, the daylights still not over yet. You should live to see evening fall, doctors working overtime. Too much of a good thing is not enough, stepping stones, building blocks. Repeat chorus The above is the "Hollywood Town Hall" version, on "Blue Earth" the second verse is slightly different, some of the lyrics are difficult to make out but I think it is the following :- Smoke and lightning, dressed to kill. Don't talk to strangers, girl take the pill Forty years of Sun death, acid rain is falling on my head. Bush raids on the rise, doctors working overtime. Too much of a good thing is not enough, stepping stones, building blocks.
