INTRO

I'm going over in Third Alley, Lord, but I'm gon’ carry my thirty-five
Lord, I'm going over in Third Alley, Lord, but I'm gon’ carry my forty-five
Because you know ain't many men, goes there and comes back alive

They will shoot you and cut you, Lord, they will knock you down
Lord, they’ll shoot you and cut you, Lord, they will knock you down
And you can ask anybody, ain't that the baddest place in town?

Mens carry thirty-eights, womens carr’ razors too
Mens carry thirty-eights, womens carr’ their razors too
And you know you better not start nothin,’ do they'll make away with you

Says I ain't going to Third Alley no more, unless I change my mind
Ain't going to Third Alley no more, Lord, ‘less I change my mind
'Cause you know I done got shot once over there, Lord, and stopped three or four times

Says you know I’m gonna leave, Lord, my forty-five most too long
Lord, my forty-five most too big
'Cause you know when I carry that gun, Lord, I can’t keep it hid
