The Night G.G. Allin Came to Town

This song is by Drive-By Truckers and appears on the album Pizza Deliverance (1999).

We were bored
There was nothing going on
Might as well stay at home
And drink until
We pass out again
Then drink some more when the morning comes

Memphis was sinking into the Mississippi
We were doing our best just to ride it down
Till the night G.G. Allin came to town
The night G.G. Allin came to town

"Honey, I don't believe this"
The old man at Ferguson's Cafe
Kept saying to his wife
As he read aloud
The Memphis Star and their account
Of what went down that night

"It says he took a shit on the stage
And started throwing it into the crowd
But he was gone before the cops could come and shut him down"
Gone before the shit came down
The night G.G. Allin came to town
The night G.G. Allin came to town

Antenna Club, Memphis, 1991
Punk rockers paid twelve dollars to be shit on
The night G.G. Allin came to town
The night G.G. Allin came to town

"It says he took the microphone and shoved it up his ass"
The old man and his wife were aghast
Me and Cooley, we just laughed so hard we both fell down
The night G.G. Allin came to town
The night G.G. Allin came to town
