Pacific Ocean, 1938, three miles off the cost of Santa Monica. Cornero launched the SS Rex and SS Tango, two flashy floating luxury gambling ships, but true to his past, the operations were soon under scrutiny.

 

Earl Warren was elected California Attorney General in 1938, but had his eye on the Governor’s seat. Lobbying for conservative reform, he became hell-bent on ending the nefarious gambling operations that plagued Los Angeles. Eradicating the “floating narcotic dens and houses of prostitution” and taking down Cornero, the always flashy, high profile headliner, was the perfect way to make his name.

 

Warren went on to become Governor of California in 1942, Supreme Court Justice in 1952 and would head the controversial Warren Commission’s investigation of the assassination of JFK.

IN THE BULLET'S PATH I'LL SHOW MY BADGE THIS IS NOT A GAME

CAUSE IN THIS TOWN NOW IT'S MY TIME TO MAKE MY NAME

CAUSE IN THIS TOWN I'LL RUN YOU DOWN JUST TO MAKE MY NAME

 

EVERYBODY'S SEEN YOU THERE

WITH YOUR DIAMONDS AND YOUR GOLD

AND EVERYBODY'S HEARD YOU SWEAR THAT NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW

 

BUT LET ME TELL YOU IT'S MY TIME

I"LL BE THE MAN WHO WILL END THIS CRIME

 

IN THE BULLET'S PATH I'LL SHOW MY BADGE THIS IS NOT A GAME

CAUSE IN THIS TOWN NOW IT'S MY TIME TO MAKE MY NAME

CAUSE IN THIS TOWN I'LL RUN YOU DOWN JUST TO MAKE MY NAME

 

HEY YA HEY YO LET'S GO

 

AND ONE NIGHT WHILE YOUR DREAMING OF YOUR RICHES AND YOUR WHORES

YOU'LL HEAR THE PEOPLE SCREAMING AND THE REX SHALL SAIL NO MORE

 

BUT LET ME TELL YOU IT'S MY TIME

I"LL BE THE MAN WHO WILL END THIS CRIME

 

IN THE BULLET'S PATH I'LL SHOW MY BADGE THIS IS NOT A GAME

CAUSE IN THIS TOWN NOW IT'S MY TIME TO MAKE MY NAME

CAUSE IN THIS TOWN I'LL RUN YOU DOWN JUST TO MAKE MY NAME

 

HEY YA HEY YO LET'S GO
