Left Hand Luke
T. Rex Lyrics

Call yourself friend, and look me in the eye,
I`ll unstrap my knees an apologize,
`Cos I`m, Left Hand Luke and the begger boys,
O yes we are.

Ain`t no neighbors, upon our hill,
`Crept slight thigh Be-bop and old gumbo jill,
But I`m, Left Hand Luke and the begger boys,
O yes we are.
Ain`t nobody`s some-one,
And it hurts deep inside,
Just call us taxi mama and we`ll take you for a ride,
`Cos we`re, Left Hand Luke and the begger boys.
O yes we are.

Left hand luke and the begger boys,
O yes we are.

Myxomatosis is an animal`s disease,
But I got so shook up mama that it ate away my knees,
And I`m Left Hand Luke and the begger boys,
O yes we are.

Ain`t had no money lord, but it`s plain to see,
If you had some silver mister how much would you pay for me?
`Cos I`m, Left Hand Luke and the begger boys,
O yes we are.

No one`s gonna fool me baby

+michael foley.... Hi Michael. The very first time I hear/ this song I thought it was someone else, but I love/ the song & when I bought the Tanx album, there it was. Perhaps some other fans thought the same thing. In what way /o you think its overlooke/. Sorry, I'm using the symbol / to replace a missing letter on my laptop...time for a new one.

Rolf Spiegelhalter

Yeah...to me it´s the best song on Tanx.... the bluesy style and his guitar play is great ... and the piano parts ...I love this song ❣❤💕💖💞😍



Simon Marples

Yep. (For me the only thing that surpasses is it is Life's a Gas.) And Ricardo's right: volume control to 11.

Ricardo Diaz

Hands down my favorite T-Rex song. Crank this one up real loud.

Thanx John. My older bro bought this LP and was in a local band at the time so had a really good stereo set up. I was only 12 so was banned from touching it. Of course I still did when he was at work. Now I can listen again and go right back to my youth,. Thank you.


I love how Marc sings this with a plaintive wail fitting of the lyrics

This song blows my mind every time I hear it it just the greatest song ever along with all his other songs it touches your soul and lifts you the highest heights one step from heaven Tanx Marc

Thomas Huth

michael foley yes it’s great. Well, ahem, but there are at least four more songs on Tanx which are still better, in my humble opinion. But I love your enthusiasm for T. Rex anyway!!!!! Rock on!
