Devil in a Blue Dress

Come on over here.
There's somebody I want you to meet.
Come on, this is a friend of mine.
Easy, this is Mr. Albright.
-Call me DeWitt, Easy.
-How you doing?

Take a seat.
Mr. Albright and me...
...go way back to before the war.
Back when I was still
in the fight game.

Ever seen this guy fight?
Every time Joppy stepped in the ring,
you knew you would see...

...some knockdown-dragout fisticuffs.
-Where you from?

Joppy's hometown.
Need a job?
Yeah. Easy always
trying to do better.

Easy's one of a few coloured men
around here who owns his own house.

He paying the mortgage every month,
just like y'all folks.

Property owner, huh?
These big companies don't give a damn.
I got out of that racket long ago.
If you need a job,
drop by this address, 7:00.

What kind of work you do?
I do favours.
I do favours for friends.
Drop by.
Who was that?
Just somebody I know.

-Businessman, huh?
-Yeah, he is.

Ain't nothing to worry about.
When I'm told there's
nothing to worry about...

...l look to see if my fly is open.
All the way home, all I thought about
was a chance to make some money.

I first came out to Los Angeles when
I got home from the war in Europe...
