Tom Waits - $29.00



little black girl in a red dress

on a hot night with a broken shoe

little black girl you shoulda never left home

theres probly someone thats still waitin up for you

its cold back in chicago

but in los angeles its worse

when all you got is $29.00 and an alligator purse

i see already that vulture in the fleetwood

with the shartruse hood

can see you're trying to get your bearings

and you say hey which ways the main stem

and where ever you say you're from

he'll say he grew up there himself

and he'll comeon and make you feel

like you grew up right next door to him

and you say take a left on central

and he throws it in reverse

cause you only got $29.00 and an alligator purse

and he'll come on like a gentleman

and you'll be a little shy

you say your ex old man was a sax player

he'll say baby i used to play bass for sly

and you say you like his cadillac, say honey i got 2 or 3

he'll say sweetheart you're sure fortunate

that you ran into me

when you've done a dime in the joint

you figure nothin could be worse

and you got $29.00 in an alligator purse

well he got pharoh on the 8 track

you start smokin a little boo

you thinkin gettin out of chicago was the

best thing ever happened to you

but he ain't no good samaritan

he'll make sure he's reimbursed

lot more than $29.00 and an alligator purse

now the sirens just an epilog

the cops always get there to late

they always stop for coffee on the way to the scene of the


they always try so hard to look like movie stars

they couldnt catch a cold

you only wasting your dime

and she's lucky to be alive

the doctor whispered to the nurse

she only lost a 1/2 pint of blood

$29.00 and an alligator purse
