      About "Manhattan"

      Lyrics for Bob Seger - "Manhattan"

      Shaky Davey's got a twelve gauge in his hand
      It's sawed off to the limit
      He's got a vague plan
      There's this liquor store on Madison
      There's another one down on Washington square
      He's pretty sure no one's ever seen him
      Down around there

      The first one's bird shot the next four are double aught buck
      The last one's a slug just for good luck
      He's got his works in his pocket
      He wants to score as soon as he's done
      He can't wait to get straight to get long gone

      He puts on his long coat scribbles off a short note
      Sits himself down and waits for the sun to go down

      It's right around midnight and there's still too damn many people on this street
      He's walked all the way from Battery Park he's got sweaty hands and burnin' feet
      He's desperate for a fix
      His body's screamin' "Get me high"
      He bursts through the door and lets one fly

      Sunrise in the park and Davey's cold as stone
      He got some bad merchandise and he was all alone
      Two more unsolved mysteries a iot of paper pushed around
      Most folks are just wakin' up in this great big town
