The Allman Brothers Band - Stand Back Lyrics


sponsored links
I recall once upon a time
Livin' was so easy and I felt so fine
But, my, my, my right before my very eyes
Satan came with fire to burn me
Wouldn't listen when they warned me
A dagger in my back while she's calling me honey
Wouldn't stand back, for neither love nor money

Thirty minutes after my ship set sail
She put up a sign and my house began to wail
But, why, why, why I couldn't see it in my little girl's eyes?
She had such a way to fool me, Lord she had a way to fool me
And I would ask the woman, can you find it in yourself to please stand back?
You ain't gonna rule me

Just when all began to fade
I reached out, threw the ace of spades
I put her on a train to the everglades

Now that it's all over and gone
Somehow I just don't feel so alone
But, lie, lie, lie it seemed like such a waste of time
She did not ever seem to know me
But, now it's much too late to show me
But, if I ever see that woman walkin' down the street I'll just stand back
And try to move away slowly
Oh, yeah
