Lyrics

The room was dark, it looked like someone had to get out fast
A window open by the fire escape
How long have you been following this guy, the bellboy asked
Not long enough, 'cause we got here too late

It's the big heat, there's someone followin' you
It's the big heat, step aside, we're comin' through

Well, we followed him from Tuscon, ended up in Baton Rouge
We trailed him with information by
A girl he knew in Barstow that ????
That was four weeks ago––well, maybe five

It's the big heat, there's someone followin' you
It's the big heat, step aside, we're comin' through

A block away he wondered if he'd left behind a clue
The front page of the paper dated 1992
He remembered when he used to be the chairman of the board
But that was when the world was young and long before the war

It's the big heat, there's someone followin' you
It's the big heat, step aside, we're comin' through

It's the big heat, there's someone followin' you
It's the big heat, step aside, we're comin' through
