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
