What The Hell Is Happening!

Howard Levinson

The Story Behind the Song
Shit happens! Sometimes for no apparent reason, or so we think. My guy in the song has a wife, a girlfriend and drinks too much. He was up to date on his alimony and was a model ‘citizen’ for 6 months before he ended up in jail. He figures “It’s all about luck, and I’m sorely lacking, makes you wonder, what the hell is happenin’.” Wild Bill Hickock had a run of bad luck while playing poker at Saloon #10 in Deadwood South  Dakota. He was shot in the back of the head holding aces and eights in his hand, thereafter called the “Dead Man’s Hand.” Up until then, Wild Bill was on top of his game. I guess he would have asked, “What the Hell is Happenin’?”

Song Lyrics

I got a great life, I got a trophy wife, 
I got money for guns, girls and liquor
I’ve even got a stash, put away for bail
So tell me how come, I’m sitting in jail

I’ve been payin’ my bills, alimony, 
child support, I’m eatin’ baloney
I’ve been a model citizen, for a half a year
I’m sittin’ in a cell, sure could use a beer

Its heads or tails, red or black
Aces and Eights will get you shot in the back
Its all about luck, and I’m sorely lackin’
Makes you wonder, what the hell is happenin’.

Did my stretch, got out of jail, 
Went on home, the house was for sale
The old lady left me, without a note
Took the money and kids, she took my bass boat

Its heads or tails, red or black
Aces and Eights will get you shot in the back
Its all about luck, and I’m sorely lackin’
Makes you wonder, what the hell is happenin’.
