RAIN ON MY FOOTSTEPS

Written By: WILY BO WALKER


RAIN ON MY FOOTSTEPS
WIND IN MY HAIR
TEN LONG YEARS
SINCE I LEFT YOU BACK THERE
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
OH MY PRETTY DARLING
I STILL LOVE YOU SO

TEN YEARS
IS A MIGHTY LONG TIME
STRUNG OUT
ALONE
ON THE MISSISSIPPI MAINLINE
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
AND OH MY DARLING
I STILL LOVE YOU SO

BUT IT WAS
BYE, BYE BABY
BABY BYE, BYE
I’M LEAVING IN THE MORNING
ON THE SEVEN-O-NINE
WHO CARES ABOUT TOMORROW, HONEY
WE’VE GOT TONIGHT
AND WE CAN MAKE BELIEVE
I NEVER GOT TO GO…

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM
AND A POCKETFUL OF CHARMS
I’D TRADE ALL THE RAIN
IN SACRAMENTO
FOR A MOMENT IN YOUR ARMS
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
OH MY DARLING
I LOVE YOU SO

BUT IT WAS
BYE, BYE BABY BABY
BABY BYE, BYE
I’M LEAVING IN THE MORNING
ON THAT SEVEN-O-NINE
WHO CARES ABOUT TOMORROW, HONEY
WE’VE GOT TONIGHT
AND WE CAN MAKE BELIEVE
I NEVER GOT TO GO…

RAIN ON MY FOOTSTEPS
THE WIND IN MY HAIR
I’D PAY THOSE DOGS IN HEAVEN
IF THEY’D JUST TAKE ME BACK THERE…
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
AND OH MY PRETTY DARLING
I STILL LOVE YOU SO…

I STILL LOVE YOU DARLING
YEH
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME…
AH
DREAM ON
OH
DREAM ON
I LOVE YOU SO…

SHOOT ME DOWN

Written By: WILY BO WALKER

FOOTSTEPS UP BEHIND ME ON A SATURDAY NIGHT
SEEMS LIKE YOU CAN'T TAKE A WALK WITHOUT TAKING A FRIGHT
I TAKE A LOOK DISCRETELY BUT I CAN'T SEE A FACE
I PUT MY BEST FOOT DOWN AND START TO INCREASE MY PACE
UNDERNEATH THE LAMPLIGHT AS I'M STARTING TO RUN
WELL! SHOOT ME DOWN IT'S A MAN WITH A GUN

LOOKEE HERE MISTER I DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH DOUGH
BUT YOU CAN HAVE WHAT I'VE GOT IF YOU JUST PLEASE LET ME GO
I GIVE HIM MY WALLET
HE GIVES ME A SMILE AND SAYS…
“YOU CAN LEAVE HERE WITH YOUR LIFE, COS I APPRECIATE YOUR STYLE!”
TURN AROUND THE CORNER AND I'M STARTING TO RUN
WELL! SHOOT ME DOWN ANOTHER MAN WITH A GUN!

“I DON'T HAVE NO MONEY, I GOT NOTHING TO LOSE!'
HE SAYS “THAT MAYBE SO, BUT I QUITE LIKE YOUR SHOES,
AND THAT SHIRT ON YOUR BACK WELL IT FITS YOU TOO LOOSE!
ANYWAY, I GOT THE GUN, I'LL JUST TAKE WHAT I CHOOSE!”
STANDING THERE NAKED AS HE TAKES OFF AND RUNS
I SEE SOMEONE TURN THE CORNER IT'S A…

STANDING STARK NAKED
IN A DEAD END LANE
AND I’M THINKING TO MYSELF
WELL HERE I GO AGAIN…
A POLICEMAN ARRIVES JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME
AND I'M THANKING GOD I'M SAVED FROM SUCH A PERSONAL CRIME
HIS EYES LIGHT UP
HE SAYS “HI SON!”
WELL I’M NOT SURE OF HIS INTENTION BUT THAT BASTARD'S PULLED A GUN…

SHOOT ME DOWN
IT'S A MAN WITH A GUN
SHOOT ME DOWN
IT'S A MAN WITH A GUN
SHOOT ME DOWN
IT'S A MAN WITH A GUN
SHOOT ME DOWN
IT'S A MAN WITH A GUN
UNDERNEATH THE LAMPLIGHT AS I'M STARTING TO RUN…
