Blondie

Blondie is an American rock band, founded by singer Deborah Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American New Wave and punk scenes of the mid-1970s. Their first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles including "Call Me", "Atomic" and "Heart of Glass" and became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco,pop,rap, and reggae, while retaining a basic style as a New Wave band. more »

I still can picture him 
His hands in his back pockets 
He wasn't much for words 
But when the wise kids made a racket 

He just had to go downtown 
Throw his weight around for starting over 
"Say did you hear I've got a band?" 
Some guys I know from LA 

Put on Rio Grande 
I'll pay you back next Friday 
You know it sure ain't big 
Just some cats I dig 

They said; "They'd do the gig" 
Oh Desperado 
Why don't you spend your life in Colorado? 
Oh restless shadow 

Out in the blue hills 
You're feeling hollow 
Oh El Diablo 
Why did you spend your life in California? 

I should have warned ya' 
No place to go now but falling over 
Some guys can't make it on the run 
Under the gun 

Not for the younger 
Oh Jack Daniel's I feel your hunger 
I know you did your best 
But you thought that you did not 

I wish that I had known 
Before I heard the last shot 
You know it's not a sin 
That little badge of tin 

Just a momento 
So sad your love remained 
My comrades lost in battle 
The music was a din from London to Seattle 

We all made you play and all our yesterdays 
Are starting over 
Oh Desperado 
Why don't you spend your life in Colorado? 

Oh restless shadow 
Out in the blue hills 
You're feeling hollow 
Oh, El Diablo 

Why did you spend your life in California? 
I should have warned ya' 
No place to go now but falling over
