Rusty James

  • This whiskey sour, amateur hour
    Raise your glass and toast your friends
    Some day we will fight again, well
    Your enemies, your tragedies
    Pocket knives and rusty chains
    Where in the hell is the old gang, yeah?

    And all the losers
    Can't even win for losing
    And the beginners
    Don't even know what song they're singing

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound
    Alright

    This broken scene is turning green
    Brass knuckles left in the rain
    Death wish kids among the living
    I want to ride on the divided
    Anything but the mainstream
    Where the fuck is your old gang, man?

    And all the losers
    Can't even win for losing
    And the beginners
    Don't even know what song they're singing

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound

    So long
    Didn't even say goodnight
    So long
    There's nowhere to go
    When you're hiding in plain sight

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound

    Well there's no one left around
    And you're the last gang in town
    And your heart can't even break
    When it doesn't even pound Writer/s: Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank Edwin III Wright, Michael Pritchard, Mike Dirnt, Tre Cool
