lyrics

Johnny was a millwright, lost three fingers and a thumb
Never quit a minute early until the job was done
Til one day he got a pink slip after a graveyard shift
So he socked the foreman in the mouth with the remainder of his fist
I was comin' on for changeout when I heard the sirens wail
It took four cops to throw ol' Johnny in the county jail

Well Johnny told me sometimes
You ain't got nothin' to lose
and he'd rather go down swingin'
than playing by the rules

Miss Suzie came up short when all the bills came due
So she went on down to 4th where she could turn a trick or two
I asked her, "hey Miss Suzie, why you walk the streets at night?"
She said, "boy you know I'm doin' what I need to get on by
You also sell your body when you go to work each day.
You see, everyone's a whore in their own kinda way."

Miss Suzie told me sometimes
You ain't got nothin' to lose
And she'd rather go down whorin'
Than playin' by the rules

So recall these words I say before you lecture and accuse
You might be talkin' down to someone who's got nothing to lose.
