lyrics

This little man doesn't need my business, I'm just in his way here
He's so far from planet earth he can only stay a day here.
But he was probably cool in high school, hell he might have been an artist.
But right now he's got 20 dollars more of my money than he had before.

And, sometimes I wonder what happened to the people I buy my drugs from.

Plays in a band, can't pay the rent, too smart to get a real job.
Not pretentious enough to matter to anybody outside the neighborhood.
Now he's learning that supply and demand means you gotta sell more than your using.
And he's a braver man than I am with 40 dollars more of my money in his hands.
Sometimes I wonder what happened to the people I buy my drugs from.

I was 25 years old, doing pretty good for myself.
I had a good job, I was making good money the best of my life was yet to come to me.
So why was in New Orleans kneeling down on the street?
Well one man pointed a gun at me and the other man stole my money from me.
Sometimes I wonder what happened to the people I buy my drugs from.

Ran the sound for the band and drank a lot of beer at Rudyards.
He had a cool british accent but not the green card to go with it.
So he sold cocaine upstairs from his run down garage apartment
I gave years of my life to that man and what I wouldn't do to get a couple of them back now.
Sometimes I wonder what happened to the people I buy my drugs from.

about

Ambulance! Houston, Texas

After not drinking for a week, Greg Wood went to Leon's Lounge for drinks. Being unresponsive on the bar gets you an ambulance ride. He woke up mid ride and asked to be dropped off at home. The EMT's smartass reply, "This is not a taxi."
This moment was the birth of the band name.
Ambulance rose from the ashes of Houston's mid 90's band Horseshoe starring Greg Wood and his songs.
