Lyrics

Timbuktu

Written By: Lee Winright

TIMBUKTU
Words and music by
Lee Winright
L.Winright/BMI
Her daddy’s eyes were on fire
Her mamma’s words came true
When I had to leave her
For Timbuktu

I left while she was sleeping
In her beautiful dreams
I did not want to disturb
The way things might seem
I know I did you wrong
That is the truth, but I had to answer the call
In Timbuktu

I wish could say things turned out
Like I said they would
But I know you would never believe
A lie that good
I’m out here fighting the good fight
I’m one of the few
Its eye for an eye in Timbuktu

I saw somebody you knew
Who recognized me
And filled me in on the details of
What you came to be
He said he never sees you cry
Like you use to
I guess that why it’s raining now
In Timbuktu

Well my name made the paper
I got me a couple of gigs
And I know you would never
Give a damn about this
I’ll be playing close to your town
I’ll be done about two
I’ll look for you in the crowd
In Timbuktu

Her daddy’s eyes were on fire
Her mamma’s words came true
When I had to leave her
For Timbuktu
