Partners In Crime    (McGuinn/Levy)

Dear Abbie, I'd write you this letter
but your address is unknown
I'd tell you the world ain't no better
since you went and left us alone

Partners in crime in the streets of Chicago
Where are they now? They're all gone free
I'd love to see you and tell you hello
but you live in secrecy

I see where Tom is planning to join the government
and Rennie says this friend of his is probably Heavensent
Jerry's into therapy and says he feels content
Oh oh, da da dee da

Lee is back on welfare, John's up in the East
Dave is still reistin' , he hasn't changed the least
And Bobby could run Oakland if the prisoners were released
Oh oh, da da dee da

Dear Abbie, I wish they would let you
come back to us again
And truly I hope they don't get you
and slam you in the pen

Roger McGuinn  "Cardiff Rose"   1976
