People Who Donít Want to Be Found ©2017 Robert George BMI

Well, I walked a beat along the misty Frisco shore
Till I pistol-whipped a pimp who killed a teenage whore
Now I make a living as a low-rent private eye
Iím a shamus cloaked in shadow, Iím a midnight spy

Got a dusty one-room office in Chinatown
Time is loss and misery, so there will always be
People who donít wanna be found

I can put a tracker on her husbandís Chevy,
If a wife suspects heís gettiní hot n heavy
With a secretary whoís a sweet young honeypot
Yeah, I get paid a C-note daily plus expenses,
Got a shoulder-holsterÖI use telephoto lenses
You can bet your bottom dollar that Iíll get the money shot

There ainít no one, nowhere I canít track down
Time is loss and misery, so there will always be
People who donít wanna be found

One day some guy told me that his wife was off the grid
Claimed she skipped town late last summer with his kid
Thought she might be in Fremont or San Jose
If I found her thereíd be two grand bonus pay

Promised he just wanted her back safe n sound
Time is loss and misery, so there will always be
People who donít wanna be found

She turned out to be a battered Venus,
Workiní drive-thru somewhere near Salinas
And her beauty outshone all the scars upon her face
She was barely thirty with a streak of grey hair,
More than half her paycheck went to rent and day care
I could see that she depended on the Good Lordís grace

I didnít wanna tell him that Iíd tracked her down
Time is loss and misery, so there will always be
People who donít wanna be found

I understood the reasons for her disappearing act
Love is life and shouldnít be a suicidal pact
So I lost my license when I broke her husbandís jaw
I left Frisco just ahead of Johnny Law

Fateís a circle just as sure as this world is round
Time is loss and misery, so there will always be
People who donít wanna be found

Well, I walked a beat along the misty Frisco shore
Till I pistol whipped a pimp who killed a teenage whoreÖ

Well both cads deserved what they got Couch---love the way you make the 4 and six line verses work..and the first line changes in the chorus

Altogether another solid story


If writing ever becomes work I think I'm going to have to stop

Lyrics remind me of a Micky Spillane novel. I love it.
Whether the 4 and 6 line verses work depend on the arrangement but I'm sure it could.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Thanks Vicarn. I'm flattered to be compared to Spillane., esp with a lyric.

Speaking of Mickey, John, if you're still out there, I hope to have Life Wish on Kindle soon. It's very noirish. I'm about 25 pages into my second book. smile
