From the recording Rock Another Day

In cart Not available Out of stock


When I was little baby
When I was a little child
I used to make my mother crazy
I used to drive her wild
Lyin’ in my cradle
Cryin’ in my bed
Night after night
This is what I said
The stars that burn above me
I call from far away
Anybody up there love me?
Let me rock another day
It was a near thing
It was a narrow escape
I turned to my comrade in arms
He was in bad shape
He said. “I felt the bullet
Before I heard the gun”
I said, “Come on, let’s get out of this
Dire situation”
If you see me in the alley
Lookin’ worse for wear
This Sword of Damocles
Is more than I can bear
We know our days are numbered
Dare we ask for more?
I’m not ready for the tolling bell
Or the wreath upon the door
