Stevie Ray Vaughan Lyrics


Mary Had a Little Lamb
Tightrope

 
Mary had a Little Lamb

by

Buddy Guy

{ guitar intro/solo }

Mary had a little lamb
His fleece was black as coal, yeah
An' everywhere the child went
That little lamb was sure to go now.

He followed her to school one day
Which broke the teachers cool
But what a time did they have
That day at school.

{ guitar solo }

Tisket! Tasket! baby
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to by baby
And on my way I past it.

Express myself.

{ guitar solo }

{ END }

Tightrope

by

(Stevie Ray Vaughan)



Caught up in a whirlwind, can't catch my breath.
Knee deep in hot water, broke out in cold sweat.
Can't catch a turtle, in this rat race.
Feels like I'm losing ground, at a breakneck pace.

Afraid of my own shadow, in the face of grace.
Heart full of darkness, spotlight on my face.
There was love all around me, but I was looking for revenge.
Thank God it never found me, would have been the end.

Walkin' the tight rope, steppin on my friends
Walkin' the tight rope, was a shame and a sin.
Walkin' the tight rope, between wrong and right.
Walkin' the tight rope, both day and night. (Solo)

Lookin' back in front of me, in the mirror's grin.
Through eyes of love I see, I'm really lookin at a friend
We've had all our problems, that's the way life is.
My heart goes out to others, who are there to make amends.

(Walkin' the tightrope) Trying to make it right
Every day and every night
Bring it all around.
From the lost to found.
Streched around the world.
Save the boys and girls.
Let's make it right.
Do it, do it tonight.
Walkin the tightrope. (Solo)
