Stand Back Lyrics

Stand Back - The Allman Brothers band

Written by:Gregg Allman/Raymond Berry Oakley III

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
