Ballad of Tommy and Maria
by Reckless Kelly



Tommy was a hesher from the valley
He was as burned out as a building from the riots
He had a rockin' little girlfriend named Marla
She was a cocktail waitress at The Pit

Sometimes, on the weekends, they'd ride jet skis
And they'd take his little trailer to the river
They'd bring along a T.V. to watch Rick Dees
Well, they smoked dope and snorted crystal meth

Marla was as skinny as a fence post
And the powder in the baggie made her talk
Sometimes she did her hair like Charlie's Angels
Yeah, well, sometimes she looked as weird as Mr. Spock

Sometimes, on the weekends, they'd eat fast food
And they'd take his El Camino to the desert
They'd ride his motorcycles in the sand dunes
Well, they smoked dope and snorted crystal meth

Tommy had a passion for firearms
His confidence, they really seemed to bolster
He bought a ninety dollar pistol for his Mar-Mar
She kept it in her little girlie holster

Sometimes, on the weekends, they'd be fighting
As Tommy thought his girl was telling lies
He thought that she was thumpin' with the bass player
Smoking all his dope and all his crystal meth

Tommy started suffering from delusions
After five nights without any sleep
He rammed his fist through Marla's bedroom window
He shoved his car keys through her dirty little teeth

But Marla got her fingers on the trigger
She grabbed her little Tommy by the hair
The pistol was still smoking on the counter
The sirens were screaming through the air
Scream on and on

Tommy was a hesher from the valley
He's just a memory of his burned out little world
Marla's doing thirty years for murder
Yeah, but she knows she's still his rockin' little girl

Someday, up in Heaven, they'll ride jet skis
They'll scrawl their names upon the Golden Wall
And maybe, up in Heaven, they'll watch Rick Dees
Smoke a little dope and snort some crystal meth
