Alice In Chains – Rooster


My Buddy’s breathin’ his dyin’ breath
They spit on me in my home land
You know he ain’t gonna die
No, no, no, ya know he ain’t gonna die (x2)
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he ain’t gonna die
Seems every path leads me to nowhere
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
Walkin’ tall machine gun man
Here they come to snuff the rooster, aww yeah
Wife and kids household pet
Oh god please won’t you help me make it through
Army green was no safe bet
The bullets scream to me from somewhere

Ain’t found a way to kill me yet

Here they come to snuff the rooster, aww yeah, hey yeah
Got my pills ‘gainst mosquito death
Eyes burn with stinging sweat
Gloria sent me pictures of my boy
No, no, no ya know he ain’t gonna die
