Black Cow
Steely Dan Lyrics


In the corner of my eye
I saw you in Rudy's
You were very high
You were high
It was a cryin' disgrace
They saw your face

On the counter by your keys
Was a book of numbers and your remedies
One of these surely will screen out the sorrow
But where are you tomorrow

I can't cry anymore
While you run around
Break away
Just when it seems so clear
That it's over now
Drink your big black cow
And get out of here

Down to Greene Street
There you go
Lookin' so outrageous
And they tell you so
You should know
How all the pros play the game
You change your name

Like a gangster on the run
You will stagger homeward to your precious one
I'm the one who must make everything right
Talk it out till daylight

I don't care anymore
While you run around
Break away
Just when it seems so clear
That it's over now
Drink your big black cow
And get out of here

I can't cry anymore
While you run around
Break away
Just when it seems so clear
That it's over now
Drink your big black cow
And get out of here

one of the few albums i've listened to in which all the songs are golden from the first track down to the last one

cut

I'm gonna toss my hat in the ring here with perfect albums and mention what was at one time a "dark horse" outing by Rush and say Moving Pictures. I also will give 2112 a shout-out and give a nod to Ten by Pearl Jam.

Steely Dan will never ever be duplicated.

yankees29

That studio sound probably can’t be reproduced now since everything went digital .
