Switchblade Knife
written by Phil Hummer

they put me in the jailhouse for fighting
fighting with my wife
they let me out in the morning
but they kept my switchblade knife

it was just a little bitty scuffle
between a man and his wife
you shouldn't ought to put me in the can
and you shouldn't ought to steal my knife

copper can you hear me calling man
i carried that blade half my life
that pretty pearly handle's gonna burn your hand
thats my switchblade knife

i bet you got it down in your sock
just in case your situation gets tight
believe me i understand
cause thats my switchblade knife

copper can you hear me calling man
i carried that blade half my life
that pretty pearly handle's gonna burn your hand
thats my switchblade knife
