Hang On St. Christopher
Tom Waits Lyrics


Hang on St. Christopher through the smoke and the oil
Buckle down the rumble seat and let the radiator boil
Got an overhead downshift and a two-dollar grill
Got an eighty-five cabin on an eighty-five hill
Hang on St. Christopher on the passenger side
Open it up tonight the devil can ride

Hang on St. Christopher with a barrelhouse dog
Kick me up Mount Baldy, throw me out in the fog
Tear a hole in the jackpot, drive a stake through his heart
Do a hundred on the grapevine, do a jump on the start

Hang on St. Christopher now don't let me go
Get me to Reno and bring it in low, yeah

Hang on St. Christopher with the hammer to the floor
Put a highball in the crank case, nail a crow to the door
Get a bottle for the jockey gimme a two-ninety-four
There's a seven-fifty Norton bustin' down January's door

Hang on St. Christopher on the passenger side
Open it up tonight the devil can ride
Hang on St. Christopher now don't let me go
Get me to Reno got to bring it in low
Put my baby on the flat car, got to burn down the caboose
Get 'em all jacked up on whiskey, then we'll turn the mad dog loose

Hang on St. Christopher on the passenger side
Open it up tonight the devil can ride, oh, yeah

Oh, yeah

St Christopher is the patron Saint of those fleeing persecution. So, that's fitting.

@coreycox2345 I dance every time I play it

Tttt Fff

That sucks

At least it is dancable, NiloNutz. Depending on one's erspective "Down in the Hole" might be way better or worse. I swear, that man has a song for every occasion.

Could have been worse. Much worse.

The bass is sick on this on the right system. It will liquify your insides

I like how the album cover looks like some 1940s folk singer
