Thin Lizzy

cutting across
the county
radio keyed
to classic rock

the black
irish bastard
phil lynott
about the boys
are back in town

his lizzy
too thin
to live behind
the needle's kick
body shot & gone
rotting beneath
verdant dublin sod

could have been
a homeboy from
east LA
with that voice

lanky black irish
bastard gone way
too soon but

the song sounds
good as ever

loud loud
speakers vibrating
the dixie

driving home
