Leave This Town (Thin Lizzy)

I better keep myself from being busted I better keep myself out of jail 'Cause I ain't got a friend to get me trusted That's why my mama sends my money through the mail I've been down on my luck I've been down on my wealth I'm gonna start taking care of business Start taking care of my health I've gotta leave this town I've gotta leave this town behind I've gotta leave this town tonight Well, I set off down the main street With such a long, long way to go But before I started I was cornered on the corner Still waiting for my sugar to show I've been down on my luck I've been down on my wealth I've gotta stop taking care of somebody's else's business Start taking care of myself I've gotta leave this town I've gotta leave this town behind I've gotta leave this town tonight I was fooling around with the sheriff's daughter She was a real fine fox But the sheriff - he came after And threatened to lock me in a cell box He showed me his magnum He showed me his shotgun He stuck it in my face And said, "Boy, I think you best be gone." I've gotta leave this town I've gotta leave this town behind I've gotta leave this town tonight
