Tim Buckley

I was a nighthawkin' in my taxi

My fare was a shaky ol' lush

So I kicked it over and took off

Then he whipped out this switch blade

Straight outta nowhere level to my throat

He said "See reb I've been over to the war boy"

I said "I was a combat paratrooper daddy"

Well now he slupped back cool and he pocket that steel

He said "Get me down to fourth and main"
