lyrics

landlord jim was a mean old son of a gun
kicked me on my ass, sent me out on the run

he's so damn greedy, so damn needy
for his cash and he wants it fast

all he wants is his green
but lately silver dollars ain't been coming to me

landlord jim was a mean old son of a gun
he told me no drinking, no singing, no fighting -- no fun

he's so damn joyless, i better hurry up and record this
before he's back and has a heart attack

all he wants is quiet and peace
but my guitar never weeps gently -- nah man it screams!

so fat and greedy
a needy old meany
landlord jim!

...
she told me that she didn’t dream
said i don’t think there’s any truth in that
she spent her time daily broadcasting
all of her misfortunes and past sins

holding onto mother’s gift
holding onto father’s regrets
meet me at the rustic inn
we’ll drink until we can forget

she told me that she rarely thinks
i said i didn’t think much of that
she met there wearing irish sunglasses
covering her mascara’d lashes

i don’t wanna know anymore
about how this is killing me
i don’t wanna know anymore
about how this is killing me

but if there’s truth if light
that means there’s truth to life
she was holding onto a flower song
in retrospect, she did nothing wrong
