The Stone Coyotes

Walkin' on a High Wire

The Stone Coyotes
Written by B. Keith, Mohawk Trail Music, ASCAP


Livin’ on the edge and you don’t know why

Why is it always do or die?

Tell me now - How you gonna cope?

Got to keep your balance up on a tightrope


Oh - Watch out

One false step and you hit the ground

Far below hear them shout

You’re walkin’ on a high wire - Don’t look down


Over the world you swing and sway

Left foot right foot day by day

Do you ever wonder?

Will you make it through or be torn asunder?


Yes, you’re playing a dangerous game

What a pity, what a crying shame

Hush now, baby, don’t you cry

Rockin’ in the cradle way up high


Who’s gonna catch you if you fall?

Can you read the writing on the wall?

I’m falling, falling, falling
