lyrics

Itchy Kitty was a lady from the city (on the wrong side of the tracks)
She keeps a list of the names of the dames (that won't be coming back)
Gone, gone, gone; and no one says a thing
No one says a thing (or thinks maybe they should be)

You can hear at night they say how they disappear in the day
High-heeled shoes, spurred-tip boots, "Hail Mary Guadalupe"
Tar to the floor, heels to the ground
Desert wind howls, desert sand drowns

Hot Hound's a King of a string of Pawn Shoppes (on the right side of town)
He's shipping crates across the boarders of the states stamped "furniture markdown"
But he's dealing Arms to the Lords of another trade
And he keeps the whole world turning in his own, violent way
Gone, gone, gone; and no one says a thing
No one says a thing (or thinks maybe they should be)

Winds from the Mexico South bring the dust rolling up North
To the city of El Paso (where they pacify the Lords)
Cause all the big men running down old Juárez town
Know to keep peace where their heads lie
(let the dirty deeds stay down South by the tracks, close enough to get back home before dawn because it doesn't take long to send a basket to a door with a message delivered from a talking head who talks no more about the walls in this city that are filled with the money of the blood of the people)
And the tellers can't be found
And the women, they can't be found
And no one says a thing
