Ring anvil for the deal we delt us by mistake
Our angel made of steel is big enough to break
'Cause the rust is at his heel and I swear I seen him shaking
But who'll be here to bring her body home

The cabaret was crowded as her bed on payday night
Sammy hit a soldier and the fools began to fight
We scattered like the shadows in the early morning light
But she remained to bring the body home

For longer that it seemed he loved some honest man
Who chased her wildest dream and rode her like the wind
And they forged the bloody chains for some wounds too deep for mending
But she was there to bring the body home

The barker stood there smiling as he beckoned us inside
To see the shining creasure that had grown too big to hide
Look here he said he's harmless and we wished he was lyin'
Cause few remained to bring the body home

Ring anvil for the deal we delt us by mistake
Our angel made of steel is big enough to break
Cause the rust is at his heel and I swear I seen him shaking
We'll be here to bring her body home
