  • Lyrics: Every One Hurts and the Last One Kills Hamilton streetlights shine on high like bursting pearls shot through the shadows of the Frutchey bean silos that hang on by the Saginaw river While Johnny walks, guitar in hand, into Old Town. Johnny and The Boomers are gonna play tonight A lonely line waits for cover in the closing, clinging murmur of summer while the wreckage of a high, white moon stripes the empty Waterworks Johnny’s Fender tunes out dayshift drunks screamin’ “Eddie Cochran!” As lonely lawyers ride the rails Johnny sings “Hey Hey My my.” His faith in the future will ring in the night There it will linger then fade ‘til the daylight Every one hurts and the last one kills. Out M-13 a Polish guy fists a long-necked Carlings and a Rueben on rye in a nickel-plated booth atop a bridge that never opens While Johnny walks across his worn string carpet and fills his head with Tangueray, to kill electric crickets crawlin’ ear to ear, day to day. His faith in the future will ring in the night There it will linger then fade ‘til the daylight Every one hurts and the last one kills.
