Warren Zevon – Lawyers, Guns and Money, 1978
For this week’s Throwback Thursday Song of the Day, we dug up this timeless Warren Zevon hit. The lyrics seem just about perfect for the troubled times we find ourselves in today… These lyrics sound just as appropriate 39 years later…
I’m a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan
Zevon left us nearly 15 years ago, but his wonderful music lives on forever. This one is from his under-rated 1978 album Excitable Boy which was packed with great music, but nothing better than this.
I picked the live version because it gives you a great glimpse into the stellar performer he was. And, the dual guitarists and pianists are pretty damn cool, too.
