Whitehorse ‘Gun Street Girl’ (Tom Waits cover) in-studio NP Music


Falling James in the Tahoe mud Stick around to tell us all a tale
Well, he fell in love with a Gun Street girl And now he’s dancing in the Birmingham jail
Dancing in the Birmingham jail He took a hundred dollars off a slaughterhouse
Joe Brought a brand new Michigan twenty-gauge
He got all liquored up on that road house corn Blew a hole in the hood of a yellow Corvette A hole in the hood of a yellow Corvette John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home I said John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home I bought a second-hand Nova from a Cuban
Chinese And dyed his hair in the bathroom of a Texaco When a pawnshop radio said quarter past four He left for Waukegan with a slamming of the
door Left for Waukegan with a slamming of the door Shadow fixed the toilet with an old trombone
He never get up in the morning on a Saturday Sitting by the Erie with a bull-whipped dog Telling everyone he saw, “they went that-a-way, everyone he saw, “they went that-a-way, crying John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home I said, John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home I’m banging on a table with an old tin cup. Banging on a table with an old tin cup. Ya never kiss a Gun Street girl again No, I’ll never kiss a Gun Street girl again I’ll never kiss a Gun Street girl again No, I’ll never kiss a Gun Street girl again John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home I said John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home I said John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home I said John, John, he’s long gone
Gone to Indiana, ain’t never coming home

  1. You guys look like a european's  vision of redneck couple 😉 But cover was amazing, keep up good work!

  2. Love it! …but you cut out 3 verses. I wanted to hear about Miss Charlotte. I understand. Leave 'em wanting more, right? 🙂

  3. the definition of robbing the soul from the song and raping it to be another piece of shit friendly listening dumb ass song. ugh

  4. I knew a woman with a yellow Corvette….it had mag wheels that looked like jet turbines….apparently they were for blowing the doors off of cars she passed…..:-)

  5. I am a fan Tom Waitas and as a rule I am accepting no interpretations of his artistic work, but, after examining it, I felt the sympathy and approval.

  6. this rocks so hard, love what you did, this would have been even better with all the lyrics. and the percussion of the original too.
