Live on Night Music with David Sanborn, 1989.
Warren performing an amazing version of his “classic” Lawyers, Guns and Money with David Sanborn on saxophone!

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Written By Warren Zevon
c. 1978 Zevon Music/BMI

I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the
Russians, too?

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this, hyeah

I’m the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock
and a hard place
And I’m down on my luck
Yes I’m down on my luck
Well I’m down on my luck

I’m hiding in Honduras
I’m a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

All right
Send lawyers, guns and money
Huh!
Uh…
Send lawyers, guns and money
Uhh!
Send lawyers, guns and money
Hyah!
Send lawyers, guns and money
Ooh!
Yeah!
Yeah
Yeah…
Uh!

  1. Well, I went home with the waitress

    Dad, get me out of this

    I'm the innocent bystander
    Somehow I got stuck
    Between the rock and the hard place
    And I'm down on my luck
    And I'm down on my luck
    And I'm down on my luck

    Now I'm hiding in Honduras
    I'm a desperate man
    Send lawyers, guns and money
    The shit has hit the fan
