    Music, Lyrics and Vocals by Bluemurderjazz

    My original dedication to the late Mark Sandman; former frontman of Morphine and a major creative influence.

    Part of my album 'Roots is Roots' ... a homage to my musical heroes.

    I’m going to a bad motel
    In the dry bone city
    I know some people there
    Whose faces ain’t that pretty
    I’m going where luck runs dry
    Down in the land of scars
    Cos they’re just my kind, they’re just my kind
    I’m going where the cops don’t call
    A place where I belong
    It’s a couple of miles from here
    The drive won’t take too long
    Just across the border
    Down in Ciudad Juárez
    En El Ocho Perros
    I know a man who’ll take my blues away
    That phone across the street
    It rings the whole night long
    But no one ever answers
    Cos no one’s ever home
    Bad debts and diesel smoke
    And Latin girls to go
    When all your cards have gone
    El Ocho’s where you go
    The preacher’s in the chapel
    He knows a man I know
    He told me where to find him
    He told me where to go
    But I don’t trust the preacher
    There’s something in his eyes
    Scarred hands and neck tattoos
    And softly spoken lies
    A man I know was waiting
    His brothers all in line
    He told me there’s a bullethole
    In my grand design
    Sangre en la calle
    Fire in my lungs
    marranos y cadaveres
    Baking in the sun
    Down in Ciudad Juárez
    Don’t buy coke in Mexico
    Stay home and have your fun
    Bullet holes or not, I think,
    I’m gonna have to run
    Down in Ciudad Juárez
    Going down in Ciudad Juárez
    Run for the border
    Run from Ciudad Juárez
    Run like you mean it
    Run like the perro
    Don’t die in Ciudad Juárez
    Down in Ciudad Juárez
    Don’t die in Ciudad Juárez

    R.I.P. Mark Sandman.
