Send Lawyers, Guns and Money – Warren Zevon

October 14, 2010

Written and performed by Warren Zevon.

Zevon spikes this song with deadly fun and twisted mischief. It’s a fantastic tale full of fury and signifying what? The plight of a rich kid on a bender calling home for money. A primer on American foreign policy. A boozy tale told by a sometimes mercenary hold up playing piano in a tropical bar.
