Shreveport Bank Job Mojo
Brad Rose
No combo, but I’m gettin’ it.  Sure, it’s goin’ a little slow, but I got ‘the touch.”   Works every time.  Just feel my way toward that sweet, sweet cash. When everythin’ clicks, these tumblers make the most beautiful music-- smooth as a good night’s sleep.   

Outside, in the pick-up, Bobbi Jean’s my getaway. That little liar says she loves my touch--- says she’ll love me longer than any little ol’ life sentence.
