Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner (2007 Remastered Version) - Warren Zevon

Written by:David Lindell/Warren Zevon/David Eric Lindell

 

Roland was a warrior from the land of the midnight Sun

 

With a Thompson gun for hire fighting to be done

 

The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day

 

So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody fray

 

Through sixty six and seven they fought the Congo war

 

With their fingers on their triggers knee deep in gore

 

For days and nights they battled the Bantu to their knees

 

They killed to earn their living and to help out the Congolese

 

Roland the Thompson gunner

 

Roland the Thompson gunner

 

His comrades fought beside him Van Owen and the rest

 

But of all the Thompson gunners Roland was the best

 

So the CIA decided they wanted Roland dead

 

That son of a b**ch Van Owen blew off Roland's head

 

Roland the headless Thompson gunner

 

Norway's bravest son

 

They can still see his headless body stalking through the night

 

In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun

 

In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun

 

Roland searched the continent for the man who'd done him in

 

He found him in Mombassa in a barroom drinking gin

 

Roland aimed his Thompson gun he didn't say a word

 

But he blew Van Owen's body from there to Johannesburg

 

Roland the headless Thompson gunner

 

Roland the headless Thompson gunner

 

Roland the headless Thompson gunner

 

Thompson gunner

 

Roland the headless Thompson gunner

 

The eternal Thompson gunner

 

Still wandering through the night

 

Now it's ten years later but he still keeps up the fight

 

In Ireland in Lebanon in Palestine and Berkeley

 

Patty Hearst heard the burst of Roland's

Thompson gun and bought it
