      About "The Big Heat"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "The Big Heat"

      The room was dark
      It looked like someone had to get out fast
      A window open by the fire escape
      "How long have you been following this guy?"
      The bell boy asked
      "Not long enough, 'cause we got here too late."
      CHORUS
      "And everybody wants another piece of pie today," he said
      "You gotta watch the ones who always keep their hands clean."
      It's the big heat
      There's someone followin' you
      It's the big heat
      Step aside we're comin' through
      Well we followed him from Tucson, ended up in Baton Rouge
      We trailed him here with information by
      A woman he knew in Barstow that would like to see him dead
      That was four weeks ago...well maybe five
      CHORUS
      A block away he wondered if he'd left behind a clue
      The front page of a paper dated 1992
      He remembered when he used to be the chairman of the board
      But that was when the world was young and long before the war
      CHORUS
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------
