South Miami Midnight

from by Dark Horse Flyer



Down in a South Miami bar
shooting 8-ball just for drinks
there was a woman at the bar, drink in her hand
smiling, she gave me a wink
I tried to keep my mind on the game
but I was having trouble with my cue
so I walked right up to those painted lips
saying, “honey what you wanna do”

someone pulled a sharp knife
said she was a good wife
South Miami midnight
my feet hit the floor
I didn’t have to hear any more
into the night,
hoping it’d be alright

Walked down Collins late one night
with the moon hidden by a cloud
neon palm trees lit my way
flashing out at the crowd
I passed a no tell motel, another
run down palace of sin
nobody cares where the hell you’re going
or the way things might have been

not a very good life
hidden from the daylight
South Miami midnight
I headed for home
and sat on the beach all alone
a bottle of rum
waiting for the morning sun

Took the helm of a rich man’s runner
I thought the job was in the bag
looking for the freighter floating the dope
flying a Columbian flag
I passed the lights of hotel row
as they faded off starboard rail
weighing the chances of making it rich
or landing my ass in jail

running from the searchlights
putting up a good fight
South Miami midnight
I headed for shore
I didn’t have to see any more
turning I saw
the long arm of the law
