I Wrote This Song About Al Capone...

THE LOOSE LIFE

Words & Music by Linus Redding

Yamaha Mo-8, Mellotron M4000D & Vocal By Linus Redding


I'm not a Foreigner in this place.

I've spent money, drugs and blood.

A shadow cast in crimson eyes.

Looking for one more score.

 

But I see a brick wall down the road.

I can't turn the wheel for no reason at all.

Blue lights screaming, but I won't slow.

Is this the end of Ricco?

 

And the Loose Life it was sweet life.

But that was long ago...

It was just business you know.

And the Loose Life it was a fast life.

Remember the good old days.

They say he had a heart of gold.

"Jesus Mercy" on his grave.................

 

He grew up in a neighborhood

Where you had to fight everyday

He learned the ropes and he had "The Look"

He had stardom and fame...

 

Some kid asked him one time.

 "What do I have to do to be like you" ?

He said, "Son, let me tell you I'd give a lot,

Not to have to walk the ledge I do."
