Stand Back Lyrics

(Gregg Allman, Berry Oakley)
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
