Lyrics

  • I CAUGHT THE RED EYE AT MIDNIGHT IN THE NICK OF TIME
  • ON THE SEVEN FOUR SEVEN AND SOON WERE FLYING HIGH
  • LORD I HAD NO TIME TO LOSE, THINGS WERE GETTING HOT
  • ONLY I KNOW WHERE WE STASHED LOOT,
  • THE MOB WANTS TO KNOW THE SPOT
  • THEY GOT THE MUSCLE IN FROM CLEVELAND
  • THE FIRE FROM DETROIT
  • THEY MISSED ME IN NEW JERSEY
  • THOUGH THINGS GOT PRETTY TIGHT
  • CAUGHT MY SCENT IN RICHMOND, AT THE HOTEL SAVOY
  • BUT I GOT OUT THE LAUNDRY CHUTE
  • AND WENT TO CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
  • I’M THE LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS
  • YEAH, THEY’RE SEARCHING COAST TO COAST
  • ONLY I KNOW WHERE WE HID THE LOOT
  • ELEVEN YEARS AGO
  • I CAUGHT THE RED EYE AT MIDNIGHT IN THE NICK OF TIME
  • ON THE SEVEN FOUR SEVEN WE SOON WERE HIGH AND WIDE
  • THE MOON WAS LAUGHING AT ME, LIKE IT DID NOT HAVE A CARE
  • BUT I JUST SMILED RIGHT BACK AND SAID ‘YOU AIN’T GOING ANYWHERE’
  • WELL, I WANT OUT OF THE RACKETS
  • AND THE NUMBERS GAME
  • ‘CAUSE WHEN YOU CROSS THE BIG BOSS
  • ONLY GOT YOURSELF TO BLAME
  • I WON’T SING LIKE A CANARY
  • AND I WON’T GO NAMING NAMES
  • I DON’T NEED POLICE PROTECTION
  • I’LL PLAY IT MY OWN WAY
  • I’M THE LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS
  • I PLAY BY MY OWN RULES
  • I’M THE LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS
  • THE SYNDICATE, WELL, IT DON’T APPROVE
  • WELL, I’M THE LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS
  • WELL, I GOT TO KEEP ON THE MOVE
  • WELL, I’M THE LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS
  • WELL, I GOT NO TIME TO LOSE, TIME TO LOSE
