Default Mark Knopfler: "I'm Cleaning My Gun"

I find this an interesting song. Any Mark Knopfler fans here?


Here's the lyrics:

Cleaning My Gun

I keep a weather eye on the horizon, back to the wall
I like to know who's coming through the door at us all

It's the old Army training, kickin' in
i'm not complaining
it's the world we live in

Ronny and Malarkey, they're a devious firm
They'll take you to the cleaners, let you burn
The help is breaking dishes in the kitchen,
thanks a lot
We hired the worst dishwasher
this place ever got
Hidden below the radar, they want to spoil our fun?..
In the meantime, i'm cleaning my gun

Remember it got so cold ice froze up the tank
We lit a fire beneath her just so she would crank
Keep a weather eye on the horizon
Tap storm glass now and then
We got a case of Old Damnation
for when you get here my friend

We can have ourselves a party before they come
In the meantime, i'm cleaning my gun

We had women in a miracle, we had a dj
We used to eat pretty much all painless ways
Ever since the goons came in took apart the place
I keep a tire iron in the corner just in case

Gave you a magic bullet on a little chain
keeping safe from the chilly winds
and the howl of the rain

we're gonna might need bullets, should we have stuck
any which way, we're gonna need a little luck

you can still get gas in heaven and drink in kingdom come?.
In the meantime, i'm cleaning my gun

Dire Straits, I spent a ton of nights zoned out listening to them with my head set clamped on my sweaty ears.

Another firearms related song;


Brothers in Arms
These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms


And it doesn't get much better than this live gig.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

It's actually JJ Cale's Cocaine sung by Clapton.

And here's why it's more famous when done by Eric:

I saw Eric Clapton,2nd row in 1984 in st.louis...Ry Cooder opened the show that time. I took sam lakebrink to the show trying to impress her. Ended up in a ditch on the way home. The car fender was tore of the 1970 dodge dart I was driving. Never took her on a nother date,she didn't like my driving back then....LAY DOWN SALLY & TULSA TIME where my favorites back then.

Geez, J.J. Cale and Ry Cooder? I may have a flashback any second.
