Elton John - "The Ballad Of Danny Bailey 1909 34 Elton John" lyrics

Some punk with a shotgun
In cold blood, in the lobby
Killed young Danny Bailey
Of a downtown motel
Killed him in anger

A force he couldn't handle
Helped pull the trigger
That cut short his life

And there's not many knew him
The way that we did

Sure enough he was a wild one
But then aren't most hungry kids
Now it's all over Danny Bailey
Dillinger's dead
And the harvest is in
I guess the cops won again
Now it's all over Danny Bailey
And the harvest is in

Back up here in the hills
We're running short of heroes
Without Danny Bailey
We're gonna have to break up our stills

'Cause Kentucky loved him
So mark his grave well
Born and raised a proper
I guess life just bugged him

And he found faith in danger
A lifestyle he lived by
A running gun younster
In a sad restless age
