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
