Blunderbuss song lyrics by Jack White

Blunderbuss is the song from the album of the same name by Mr Jack White, formally of the White Stripes and Dead Weather.

Lyrics

Had my dream I held your hand on matbroad avenue (?)
We crossed the road and never spoke to another as we flew
Left your man alone in drag laughing there at us
A Romantic bust a blunder turned explosive blunderbuss

An ancient grand hotel of Persian thread and ivory
And when your man would turn his head I’d see you look at me
Pools of brown and cigarette (?)
And demons in your pocket that sang romance
Performed a dance inside a silver locket

Corner exit that’s not enough to walk out standing straight
Designed by men so ladies would have to lean back in their gate
You grabbed my arm and left with me but you were not allowed to
You took me to a public place to quietly blend into
Such a trick pretending not to be doing what you want to
But seems like everybody does this every waking moment

I laid you down and touched you
Like the two of us both needed
Safe to say that others might not approve of this and pleaded
So selfish them would be there crying
Who would be brave to argue
Doing what two people need is never on the menu

Check out the lyrics to Sixteen Saltines or the popular Love Interruption.

    Had my dream I held your hand on matbroad avenue (?)
    We crossed the road and never spoke to another as we flew
    Left your man alone in drag laughing there at us
    A Romantic bust a blunder turned explosive blunderbuss

    An ancient grand hotel of Persian thread and ivory
    And when your man would turn his head I’d see you look at me
    Pools of brown and cigarette (?)
    And demons in your pocket that sang romance
    Performed a dance inside a silver locket

    Corner exit that’s not enough to walk out standing straight
    Designed by men so ladies would have to lean back in their gate
    You grabbed my arm and left with me but you were not allowed to
    You took me to a public place to quietly blend into
    Such a trick pretending not to be doing what you want to
    But seems like everybody does this every waking moment

    I laid you down and touched you
    Like the two of us both needed
    Safe to say that others might not approve of this and pleaded
    So selfish them would be there crying
    Who would be brave to argue
    Doing what two people need is never on the menu

  2. I think it might be "that broad avenue" (or is that too simple?) and "pools of brown and sea of red." Just my 2c, great job with the lyrics!

  6. I'm sure he sings
    "die, die, die, die"
    at the end, and fading in the middle of the song.

  7. "so selfish, them" would be their cry, and who would be brave to argue?
