JOAN BAEZ lyrics : "alter boy & the thief"

At night in the safety of shadows and numbers
Seeking some turf on which nothing encumbers
The buying and selling of casual looks

Stuff that gets printed in x-rated books
Your mother might have tried to understand
When you were hardly your daddy's little man

And you gave up saluting the chief
To find yourself some relief


Finely plucked eyebrows and skin of satin
Smiling seductive and endlessly Latin
Olympic body on dancing feet

Perfume thickening the air like heat
A transient star of gay bar fame
You quit your job and changed your name

And you're nearly beyond belief
As you hunt down a little relief


The seven foot black with the emerald ring
Broke up a fight without saying a thing
As the cops cruised by wanting one more chance

To send Jimmy Baldwin back over to France
And a trucker with kids and a wife
Prefers to spend half of his life

In early Bohemian motif
Playing pool and getting relief


My favorite couple was looking so fine
Dancing in rhythm and laughing in rhyme
In the light of the jukebox all yellow and blue

Holding each other as young lovers do
To me they will always remain
Unshamed, untamed, and unblamed

The altar boy and the thief
Grabbing themselves some relief


The altar boy and the thief
Catching a little relief
