Rayland Baxter - Hey Larocco Lyrics




I don't wanna go outside
Tonight I wanna kill some time
Unlike every time I've done before
On a clear day you might see me
In a cage on the yellow brick road
Wishing I had someone to adore

All the trouble I can find in Baltimore
But don't let me die behind this iron door

Hey Larocco, why'd you rat me out?
Now I'm in trouble, don't you fail me now
I'm the only ace around
I know you wanna bring me down
But hey Larocco

I believe it was a Friday night
Charlie Avenue bullfight
A lightning bolt to Mike Lorocco's head
He was angry at a friend of mine
I'ma save you when I have the time
The Jesus freaks they taught me everything

But I swear to God, he died there in the street
And now this iron door is closing down on me

Hey Larocco, why'd you rat me out?
Now I'm in trouble, don't you fail me now
I'm the only ace around
I know you wanna bring me down
But hey Larocco

I bet you and your mama think
I got a big gold rock in the bank
But just because I dress like them
It don't mean I was made of million
What about the little kid I was saving
He was the one misbehaving
And now I lay on the concrete floor
Behind the 9 foot iron door

Hey Larocco, why'd you rat me out?
Now I'm in trouble, but please, brother, don't you fail me now

Hey Larocco, why'd you rat me out?
Now I'm in trouble, don't you fail me now
I'm the only ace around
I know you wanna bring me down
But hey Larocco

Hey Larocco
Hey Larocco
Oh, hey Larocco
Oh, hey Larocco

    I love his sound!

  2. Reto Hofmann

    Saw him yesterday in Winterthur/Switzerland - great, great, great!

    Rayland, we've been singing this song around our house for about a month after hearing it on The Current in Duluth, MN, probably broadcasted out of Minneapolis, MN, driving around in our Subaru. The melody haunted us for a couple of days in the best of ways and then we incorporated it into our daily routines with the dogs and cats and our baby, substituting what we imagined the lyrics to be with nicknames, jokes, and the like: "Hey Morocco, I e-mailed that guy" "Hey Barack O.... Bama," "Oh no, Restrepo, that was on Netflix," and so on.

    I hope you continue to push this song around and market it. It's a melody that has its own character and flavor, and could go far. Or it could fall off the face off the earth like most songs do. Anyway, we like this song very much and wish you the best of luck in your music career. Go sing it out there and hire a publicist and/or a good music manager that will get you saturated on the indie radio stations, blogs, music-streaming sites, and so on. This is a banger, a real one, and better than I've heard in a long time. You could leverage a good music career off this baby.

    Not sure where you're based out of, but there's a strong dreamwave/dreampop/whatever-the-fuck-it-is scene in Portland, OR, still, and labels out of CA supporting artists that are doing what you're doing. Make sure you follow through on this and make your dream come true, or so on.

    All the best, for what it's worth,

    Dr. Dan

    Story goes, he got in a fight with the BMX racing champ Mike Larocco and got booked for assault, even though supposedly Larocco was beating up a guy that Baxter knew.
