Black Bart Blues
(Dickinson, Harris)

/spoken into/

Bruce: 'What the fuck is that?'
Nerd:  'Hi, guys, are you in a band or something?
       I mean it would be so cool
       if you were in a band 'cos you're
       Driving a big bus with band on the front of it'
Bruce:  'Why don't you shut up and get on board will ya?'
Nerd:   'Wow! I have it here you got a stereo and a microwave
       And, and you got a beer,
       I'd like a Heineken if you've got one'
       that's real cool, that's great, yeah!'
Bruce:  'Would you like to see Black Bart?'
Nerd:   'Who's Black Bart?'
Bruce:  'Let me introduce you'

Black Bart's seen it
Black Bart knows
Black Bart's done it
The Black Bart blues
Suspended in suspension
Many evil nights in Tennessee, and elsewhere
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Black Bart's truckin' ain't what it seems
Black Bart's lookin'
Don't know where she's been
Maybe she's an acrobat
Spends her evenings dancing on a pole
We all got to try the Black Bart blues
Black Bart tried most anything
Black Bart liked it but he couldn't sing
So he asked me to tell ya
Try it for yourself and you will see
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Bruce: 'What did you do that for?'
Nerd:  'I'm sorry, I just..., I guess I'm not used to...
Bruce: 'Shut up and get on with it will you'

Black Bart's livin' across the ocean now
Black Bart's lookin' to come back somehow
So if you are a dancer,
You could dance his pole in May
That's a maypole

Black Bart's coming
Now Black Bart's gone
Black Bart did it so I wrote this song
Whatever and however,
In and out or several at a time mmm yes!
We all got to do the Black Bart blues
Here comes the guitar solo

We all got to try the Black Bart blues
Yowsa!  Yowsa!  Yowsa!
