Is this your wife, Jackie Brown With sad blue eyes Walking on eggshells So you don`t see her frown Is this your family, Jackie Brown Dream of vacationing On a mountain stream And giving the world More than it gave you What ugly truths freedom brings And it hasn`t been very kind to you Is this your life, Jackie Brown Is this your meal, Jackie Brown Barely enough, I`ve seen people Throw more than this out Is this your home, Jackie Brown This three room shack With no running water And the bathroom out back Is this your grave, Jackie Brown This little piece of limestone That says another desperate Man took himself out Is this your dream, Jackie Brown Going nowhere and nowhere fast We shame ourselves to Watch people like this live But who gives a damn About Jackie Brown Just another lazy man who Couldn`t take what was his One helluva life, Jackie Brown Forever more, Jackie Brown Amen and Amen, Jackie Brown
