Grand Larceny

John Gorka

Walter Tucker was arrested for receiving stolen goods

That he got from his cousin who's a common neighborhood

They Pittsburgh-pawned the instrument that the perpetrator stole

Walter said they spilit the cash but denies a larger role

Walter'd never been arrested so I doubt he'll do the time

But the cousin had a record that seemed to chain his life to crime

"I never should have trusted him" Walter of his cousin said

Now the face and fingers are on file and there's judges in his head


Grand larceny, grand larceny

It's what you you get away with and who you can deceive

Pittsburgh has the Steelers and the Pirates and the Thieves

It happened in broad streetlight to an unsuspecting car

My wallet cash and valuables and yet-to-be-pawned guitar

I was fried enough inside to want to leave my tools behind

It was a massive temporary shortage of the mind

From a diner after midnight to the parking lot to see

There was just a pile of window where the ride home used to be


It was my first night in Pittsburgh

And I know I will return

But I won't forget the welcome

That the outlaws let me earn
