Lyric of the day from the Gigliotti vinyl collection

Daddy's rifle in my hand

felt reassurin'

He told me,

"Red means run, son

numbers add up to nothin' "

But when the first shot

hit the docks I saw it comin'

Raised my rifle to my eye

Never stopped to wonder why.

Then I saw black,

And my face splashed in the sky.

Neil Young, "Powderfinger"

Rust Never Sleeps (1979)
