That Song About The Midway - Bonnie Raitt

When I met you on a midaway at a fair last year


And you stood out like a ruby

in a black man's ear


You were playing on the horses

You were playing on the guitar strings

You were playing like the devil wearing wings


Wearing wings,

you looked so grand, wearing wings


Do you tie them to your shoulders just to sing


Can you fly? I hear you can!

Can you fly?

Just like an eagle doin' his hunting from the sky


I followed through a sideshow to another town


And I found you in a trailer

on the camping grounds


You were betting on some lover,


shootin' out the dice


And I thought I saw you cheating once or twice


Once or twice, I heard ya did,

once or twice


Were you wondering was the gamble

worth the price


Now you've packed it in,

I heard you did, packed it in


Was it hard to fold a hand

you knew you could win?


Lately you've been hiding,

it was somewhere in the news


And I'm still at these races

with my ticket stubs and my blues

The man calls out the numbers...


he sometimes mentions mine


But I feel like I've been working overtime


Overtime, I've lost my fire, overtime


Always playing one more hand for one more dime

Well I'm slowin' down,

I'm getting tired, slowin' down


And I envy you the valley that you've found

'Cause I'm midway down the midway

Slowin' down, down
