Warren Zevon

I used to listen to Warren Zevon ages ago. It was only a short time but I liked "Excitable Boy" enough but could never really put my finger on why I liked it. Looking back it wasn't the melodies or even a particular hook. Rather, it was his dry wit that drew me in. My wife and I were watching "Justice" and I heard the theme song and it sounded familiar and as I suspected, it's Warren.
Herewith are the lyrics:

Lawyers, Guns and Money

Well, I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock and the hard place
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck

Now I'm hiding in Honduras
I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

Send lawyers, guns and money...

Sound advice I'd say.
