      The Decemberists - The Bagman's Gambit Música y Letra

      On the lam from the law 
      On the steps of the capitol 
      You shot a plainclothes cop on the ten o'clock 
      And I saw momentarily 
      They flashed a photograph, it couldn't be you 
      You'd been abused so horribly 
      But you were there in some anonymous room 
      And I recall that fall 
      I was working for the government 
      And in a bathroom stall off the National Mall 
      How we kissed so sweetly 
      How could I refuse a favor or two 
      For a trist in the greenery 
      I gave you documents and microfilm, too 
      
      And from my ten floor tenement 
      Where once our bodies lay 
      How I long to hear you say 
      No, they'll never catch me now 
      No, they'll never catch me 
      No, they cannot catch me now 
      We will escape somehow 
      Somehow 
      
      It was late one night 
      I was awoken by the telephone 
      I heard a strangled cry on the end of the line 
      Purloined in Petrograd 
      They were suspicious of where your loyalties lay 
      So I paid off a bureaucrat 
      To convince your captors they're to secret you away 
      
      And at the gate of the embassy 
      Our hands met through the bars 
      As your whisper stilled my heart 
      No, they'll never catch me now 
      No, they'll never catch me 
      No, they cannot catch me now 
      We will escape somehow 
      Somehow 
      
      And I dreamt one night 
      You were there in fours 
      Head held high 
      In uniform 
      
      It was ten years on 
      When you resurfaced in a motorcar 
      With the wave of an arm 
      You were there and gone
