It’s Criminal!

Many people love reality or fictional crime shows. What songs are about crime? Either committed or thought about. I was surprised when I thought of this just how many there are. 

Hey Joe-Jimi Hendrix


 
Hey Joe I heard you shot your woman down You shot her down, now

Fire On The Mountain - The Marshall Tucker Ban

 

Dance hall girls were the evening treat

Empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street

Men were shot down for the sake of fun

Or just to hear the noise of their 44 guns

 

Now my widow, she weeps by my grave

Tears flow free for her man she couldn’t save

Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame

All for a useless and no good worthless claim

A bitter indictment of the behind the scenes money makers in the music business...could also be interpreted to include the live entertainment ticket business in general.

Whisky In The Jar - Thin Lizzy

 

As I was goin’ over the Cork and Kerry mountains

I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin’

I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier

I said “Stand and deliver, or the devil he may take you”

 

Later in the story, his lover betrays him, and Captain Farrell comes to arrest him and take him off to prison.

 

Happy St Patrick’s Day!! ☘️Slainte! 🥃 ☘️

The Black Velvet Band - The Irish Rovers

 

Well, I went out strolling one evening, not meaning to go very far,
When I met with a frolicksome damsel. She was selling her trade in the bar.
A watch she took from a customer, and slipped it right into my hand.
Then the law came and put me in prison.
Bad luck to her black velvet band!

Her eyes, they shone like the diamonds.
You'd think she was queen of the land,
And her hair hung over her shoulders,
Tied up with a black velvet band.

Next morning, before judge and jury, for trial I had to appear.
And the judge, he said "my young fellow, the case against you is quite clear.
And seven long years is your sentence. You're going to Van Diemen's Land,
Far away from your friends and relations. They follow the black velvet band."

The Great Filling Station Holdup - Jimmy Buffet

 

I pulled into the regular pump
I was feelin' quite at ease
I rolled down my window and told the man
"Fifty cents worth, please"
Then out jumped my partner
With his trusty pellet gun
He said, "Boy, this is a holdup
Keep pumpin' and don't run."

Robbin’ The Cradle: Tony Bellus (Always struck me as a creepy song. But I suppose it fits the topic: 1) it has Robbin’ in the title and 2) most if not all States criminalize “robbing the cradle”).
