lyrics

Oh Salinas

Brown eyes squint beneath a white cowboy hat.
Pushes a cart with the bell that rings flat.
Youngster puts a gun to his chest.
Makes off with $20 and leaves behind a bleeding mess.

Oh Salinas.

Children scream, there's adults all around.
In locked living rooms you can hear the sound;
Sirens wail as police arrive.
But all the witnesses are hiding inside.

Oh Salinas

Doctor asks if this man can pay.
"With this wound he will have to stay."
Brown eyes worries about his son back home,
Who sells a twenty sack over his dad's telephone.
