lyrics

Head wrapped in a do-rag.
Bottle in a brown bag.
He's standing on a sewer drain.

Head full of bull crap.
He's screaming black rap.
Oh the drugs has driven him insane.

You can feel the strain when you're
Down in Spanish Plain.
It's enough to break your back.
Poverty and crack pipes.
Dead cat with black stripes.
I ain't going back again.

Oh the sun and the rain
Come around here just the same.
To those people that's lining up
For that misery train.
Down in old Spanish Plain.

Old lady with a shopping cart.
She's got a bad heart,
And it's uphill in the driving rain.
Her kid done gone bad.
He never knew his dad.
Oh the drugs has driven him insane.

You can feel the strain baby
Down in Spanish Plain.
It's enough to break your back.
Poverty and crack pipes.
Dead cat with black stripes.
I ain't going back again.

Oh the sun and the rain
Come around here just the same.
To those people that's lining up
For that misery train.
Down in old Spanish Plain.
