Love Kills
(Strummer)

Lyrics

Walking out of England thinking you were king taking on this world 
On that bus that goes through Mexico a killer love finds a sweet Mexican girl 

But down in Mississippi we rushed into the room 
Down in Dixie you were crying for dope 

Down in Alabama they like home cooked fare yeah 
So we're gonna strap you to the fryin' chair yeah 

But I don't know what love is 
Is there something else giving me the chills? 
But if my hands are the color of blood 
Then, I can tell ya 
sure I can tell ya 
Love kills 
Love Kills 
Love kills 
Love Kills 

Do you wanna hear all the sirens of the city drown the arguing? 
We're on riker's island on a population board 
They don't care about your fame 

But I don't know what love is 
Is there something else giving me the chills? 
But if my hands are the color of blood 
Then, I can tell ya 
sure I can tell ya 
Love kills 
Love Kills 
Love kills 
Love Kills 

On the Rio Grande they'll tie you to a tree 
Ooh-oh-ohh x2 
And you can't call the lawyers 'cause the whorehouse is asleep 
Ohh-oh-ohh x2 
You people will get weak 
Ohh-oh-ohh x2 
They'll throw you in a cell where you can barely breathe 

But I don't know what love is 
Is there something else giving me the chills? 
But if my hands are the color of blood 
Then, I can tell ya 
sure I can tell ya 
Love kills 
Love Kills 
Love kills 
Love Kills
