I walked out in the city night
A burnin' in my eyes like it was broad daylight
And it was hot, down there in the crowd
The stars went out behind a thunder cloud

Chatter in the air, like a telegraph line
Big drops hissing on the neon sign
Thumping in my heart and it's hurting me to see
Smokestack blowing, now they're pouring heavy water on me

Ohh oh, pouring heavy water on me
Ohh oh, heavy water

She was a Southern girl, we stared man to man
I moved like a stranger in this strange land
She was a round hole, I was a square peg
I watched the little black specks running down her leg

Didn't seem to mind that dirty rain coming down
Shirts hanging open, she was wet and brown
Thumping in my heart and it's hurting me to see
Smokestack blowing, now they're pouring heavy water on me

Ohh oh, pouring heavy water on me
Ohh oh, pouring heavy water

Heavy water
Pouring heavy water

What goes up has to fall back down
It's no night to be out dancing in a party town
When it runs hot and it runs so wide
Running in the street like a thin black tide

Chatter in the air like a telegraph line
Big drops hissing on the neon sign
Thumping in my heart and it's hurting me to see
Smokestack blowing, now they're pouring heavy water on me

Ohh oh, pouring heavy water on me
Ohh oh, pouring heavy water on me
Ohh oh, pouring heavy water on me
Ohh oh, pouring heavy water on me
