about

One time Josh, unbeknownst to him, went shopping online while zonked on Ambien. Some time later a red electric dobro showed up on the doorstep. This song was the result.

lyrics

Old moneybags has got a bone to pick
Couldn't stand the thought of losing one gold brick
He paid the Pinkertons to hang 'em high
They found 'em swinging on a hot July
That's where he lay

Big boss man didn't like her none
Knew she was about to cut and run
He paid the Pinkertons to kill her dead
They found her body but not her head
That's where she lay

These clumsy so-called workers, they just can't mind a switch
They stumble into bullets and fall into a ditch
They slip on bloody sidewalks on forgotten ends of town
They climb back on their soapbox and we kindly help them down

Pinkertons are a nasty bunch
They'll shoot you down while you eat your lunch
Paid by the rich to kill off the poor
If you see 'em coming better hit the floor
That's where ya lay
