Noir Music | “She’s Long Gone” and “Ten Cent Pistol” by The Black Keys

I couldn’t resist posting The Black Keys again in my noir music category. Get used to it, they’re bleeding our noir definition through their dirty blues rock. “She’s Long Gone” and “Ten Cent Pistol” are both classic femme fatale anthems. The raw energy and power of this live set is earth shattering, enjoy.

lyrics for “She’s Long Gone” :

She was made to blow you away
She don’t care what any man say
You can watch her strut
But keep your mouth shut
Or it’s ruination day

She’s long, long gone
She’s long gone like
Moses through the corn

Her eyes are rubies and pearls
And she’s not made like those other girls
Her lashes flap and they smack men back
Like springs they bounce off of her curls

She’s long, long gone
She’s long gone like
Moses through the corn

lyrics for “Ten Cent Pistol” :

Well, he ran around
Late at night
Holding hands
And making light
Of everything
That came before
But there she was
Behind the door

She hit them with her ten cent pistol
Because they ruined her name
Well, she hit them with her ten cent pistol
And they’ve never been the same

There’s nothing worse
In this world
Than payback from a
Jealous girl
The laws of man
Don’t apply
When blood gets in
A woman’s eye

Well, she hit them with her ten cent pistol
Because they ruined her name
Well, she hit them with her ten cent pistol
And they’ve never been the same

Stars did fall
Thunder rolled
Bugs crawled back
In their holes
The couple screamed
But far too late
Cause a jealous heart
Did retaliate

She hit them with her ten cent pistol
Because they ruined her name
Well, she hit them with her ten cent pistol
And they’ve never been the same
