There was heat in the air

And cops everywhere you looked

So there wasn't a lot

And the breaks that you got You know you took

And I remember wonderin' Where you been

The night Spanish Eddie cashed it in

The night Spanish Eddie cashed it in

They were playin' "Desolation Row" On the radio

The night Spanish Eddie fell from grace

There was amazement on his face

On the night that Eddie failed Sanity prevailed

It was June or July

When the heat from above beat down

It was famine or drought

When the brothers went out Of syle uptown

And we was mixin' Vicks with lemon gin

The night Spanish Eddie cashed it in

The night Spanish Eddie cashed it in

They were playin "Desolation Row" On the radio

The night Spanish Eddie made front page

His revolution came of age

He wrote "Surrender" on the wall

The night he took the fall

I heard someone say "He's tryin' to fly"

Like Eddie used to say We'll do when we die

I know someone turned you For a spin

The night Spanish Eddie cashed it in

The night Spanish Eddie cashed it in

They were playin' "Desolation Row" On the radio
