Iron Maiden - Black Bart Blues Lyrics




[Spoken intro]
[Bruce] 'What the fuck is that?'
[Nerd] 'Hi, guys, are you in a band or something? I mean it
would be so cool if you were in a band 'cos you're Driving a
big bus with band on the front of it'
[Bruce] 'Why don't you shut up and get on board will ya?'
[Nerd] 'Wow! I have it here you got a stereo and a microwave
And, and you got a beer, I'd like a Heineken if you've got
one' that's real cool, that's great, yeah!'
[Bruce] 'Would you like to see Black Bart?'
[Nerd] 'Who's Black Bart?'
[Bruce] 'Let me introduce you'

Black Bart's seen it
Black Bart knows
Black Bart's done it
The Black Bart blues
Suspended in suspension
Many evil nights in Tennessee, and elsewhere
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

Black Bart's truckin' ain't what it seems
Black Bart's lookin'
Don't know where she's been
Maybe she's an acrobat
Spends her evenings dancing on a pole
We all got to try the Black Bart blues
Black Bart tried most anything
Black Bart liked it but he couldn't sing
So he asked me to tell ya
Try it for yourself and you will see
We all got to try the Black Bart blues

[spoken]
[Bruce] 'What did you do that for?'
[Nerd] 'I'm sorry, I just..., I guess I'm not used to...
[Bruce] 'Shut up and get on with it will you'

Black Bart's livin' across the ocean now
Black Bart's lookin' to come back somehow
So if you are a dancer,
You could dance his pole in May
That's a maypole

Black Bart's coming
Now Black Bart's gone
Black Bart did it so I wrote this song
Whatever and however,
In and out or several at a time mmm yes!
We all got to do the Black Bart blues
Here comes the guitar solo

We all got to try the Black Bart blues
Yowsa! Yowsa! Yowsa!

    "Black Bart Blues" is about the suit of armour that rode in the back lounge of Iron Maiden's tour buses (named Black Bart). Bruce Dickinson tells that he, his bandmates and their tour manager were driving in a Ford Thunderbird through Florida in 1983, when they passed a gas station with three suits of armour standing outside. So Bruce stopped the car and went to buy one of the three suits of armour that were on sale. The song's lyrics detail a rather infamous story in which a girl stumbled onto the band's tour bus and struck a deal with one of the band members that she'd give them oral sex in exchange for alcohol.

  22. Jared Lewis

    Bart is a pop tart from the Simpsons

  23. Rusty Kuntz

    This def was the making of an all night drinking spree, so silly, yet I still listen to it. maiden can shit on a stick & I'll probably like it.

  24. MacKaris

    Get off the mic, Nicko, you're drunk.

    Cook moore

    Was it him at the beginning? He has the funny expressions in his voice...I thought it was Bruce or the manager.
    Nice edits of the bloopers in the studio at the end. He must be influenced by The Goons Show from this and his version of Hocus Pocus.

  25. Hellwyck

    What ho' said the t'ing...!

  26. Vamo el Millo!!!

    bullshit iron maiden song
