A             B         A            B
Don't you know I need a place to stay
A           B        A   B
Only fifteen bucks a day
I didn't want to end up here
But now I guess I need to stay

(second verse, same as the first!)

River red, runs like lead
And the smell of kerosene in my head
Stuck here in this shithole
Reading foreign magazines instead

"But senor, I only have ten dollars;
Can't you spare me a room for the night?"

the song finishes on a sustained A
