lyrics

You can drop me off in Limbo on your way to West Hell
I will give your regards to the moon and the stars from the
Bottom of a wishing well

Sounds like you heard all my secrets on that inside track
Aw, I laid it all bare-- I left nothing to spare now I'm
Never gonna take it back

But if you ever need for me to steal something for you,
Just call my name on that inside track
You know my secrets. You got my number.
I crossed my heart. Now I'll never take it back.

Just like a Palm Wine Drunkard playing ghost guitar,
I'maw shake you right down and take you right back to the
Place where you already are

Let's get that sweet little girl back on the snakerophone--
Would you crank it up high--Would you shoot out the lights--Would you
Hand me down my Stratotone?

But if you ever need for me to steal something for you,
Just call my name on that inside track
You know my secrets. You got my number.
I crossed my heart. Now I'll never take it back.

I took it right down to the crossroads--I held my babe in my arms.
And we danced til the dawn to those old creole songs then they
Slipped into Les Barres De La Prison

And then I kissed all my diamonds--I got my hands on the dice
And I screamed and I raved and I begged and I prayed I could
Step into that river twice

Now, Baby, Who do you Think you're fooling?
Everybody knows and understands--
You got me walking on pins and needles
But everybody knows that you're my man. You're my man.
