Linden Arden Stole The Highlights - Van Morrison
    Linden Arden stole the highlights --

    With one hand tied behind his back --
    Loved the morning sun, and whiskey
    Ran like water in his veins
    Loved to go to church on Sunday
    Even though he was a drinking man
    When the boys came to San Francisco
    They were looking for his life
    But he found out where they were drinking
    Met them face to face outside
    Cleaved their heads off with a hatchet
    Lord, he was a drinkin' man
    And when someone tried to get above him
    He just took the law into his own hands

    Linden Arden stole the highlights
    And they put his fingers through the glass
    He had heard all those stories many, many times before
    And he did not know nor care to ask
    And he loved the little children like they were his very own
    You say, "Someday it may get lonely."
    Now he's livin', livin' with a gun
