Lyrics
I don't have to warn ya
Black clouds are coming
Go out, get a hand gun
Walk the streets of Houston
Headlines to the west
Skylines falling down

I walked out this morning
My moose skin was jiving
I don't have to warn ya
Black clouds are coming
Headlines to the west
Skylines falling down

[Chorus]
People getting ready
Yeah, people getting ready
To meet the king of kings
To meet the king of kings

Out on the main line
There's a pitch black highway
The city after midnight
Is up around the next bend
Sunrise in the east
Cities burning down
(i feel burned down now)

[Chorus]

I don't have to warn ya
Black clouds are coming
Go out, get a hand gun
Walk the streets of Houston
Headlines to the west
Skylines falling down
(I see falling down now)

[Chorus]

(I got to go now)

[Chorus]
