Blood Money
J. Bon Jovi, alternate lyrics, as sung on Rockline--August 1990

Hey Patty Garrett, thatís what I used to call you.
They tell me you want me, but I hear theyíve got you.
Made you a lawman with your badge made of silver,
Paid you some money to sell them my blood.

What ever happened to ridiní hard on the southwind?
What ever happened to us in the end?
I called you amigo. I called you my brother, and Patty Garrett, I
called you my friend.

(But you see) This ainít about me, this ainít about you,
Or the good and the bad times weíve both been through.
When the lines between brothers and justice have changed,
You do what you gotta, Ďcause you canít walk away

Once I thought nothing would come in between us
Once I thought honor and blood were the same
Who ever thought weíd let a cruel world defeat us?
Who ever thought that those feelings would change?

Oh Patty, I donít know

Cause, this ainít about me and this ainít about you
Or the good and the bad times weíve both been through
When the lines between brothers and justice have changed,
You do what you gotta, Ďcause you canít walk away
Blood money, thatís what I call it, Ďcause money for blood,
ainít nofair exchange.
Blood money, bought and then sold you,
but your conscience is all you can take to your grave

Once I had a dream and in that dream was a coffin.
I could not see the body, I could not see his face.
When I saw no one crying and I saw no forgiveness,
I knew the name Bonnie would be marked on that grave.

Blood money, bought and then sold you.
ĎCause money for blood it ainít no fair exchange
Blood money, thatís what I call it
But Patty, you canít take it to your grave
