lyrics

I found honest work and lord knows I tried

I found honest work and lord knows I tried

Robbed a bank and ran from the fuzz

They asked the teller just who I was

She said “I don't know, but he had John Dillinger's eyes!”


For five long years I was wanted by the FBI

For five long years I was wanted by the FBI

I was shooting pool at the hall

Saw my poster up on the wall

“Ain't that you? You got John Dillinger's eyes!”


I caught one in my chest and two in my thigh

I caught one in my chest and two in my thigh

I saw a man rush to my side

Took a photograph as I died

And all because I was born with John Dillinger's eyes!


That newspaper man won the Pulitzer Prize

That newspaper man won the Pulitzer Prize

He keeps it by his bed on a shelf

But one thing that he'll never tell

Every day he thanks god for John Dillinger's eyes!
