lyrics

Jimmy’s undressing it’s late in the barracks
the gun on the table that smells like his woman
that smiles from the picture there’s a pain in his chest
he looks in the mirror and sees and old man
slingshots and silver knuckles and boom down Jimmy

He’s been calling her name from faraway bedrooms
dirt under fingernails scratching at stitches
under the neon lights down in the tunnels
Jimmy’s been playing those dangerous games
slingshots silver knuckles and boom down Jimmy

Tina’s undressing her skirt on the carpet
a ring on the dresser a letter torn open
she looks in the mirror and dimly reflected
on Jimmy in tunnels playing dangerous games
slingshots silver knuckles and boom down Jimmy

Two young lovers side by side
wars and oceans so divided
paper cups and souvenirs
she’ll keep her dress for seven years

She picks up her suitcase and walks through the station
newspaper sellers still singing of war
there’s a letter inside her she still hasn't written
she steps on the train the man blows his whistle
slingshots silver knuckles and boom down Jimmy
