Tony Joe White - The Giftrate me
I was sitting in a grave yard late one night,
I didn't know why
Had an old guitar and a bottle of wine
Diggin' that moon hangin' in the sky.
Had a little tune going through my head
Then I started to cry
Burden layin' heavy on my heart
Too much on my mind.
I was staring out at the shadows
When a tall woman appeared
Heard her whisper, we know why you're here
All around you they're gonna gift you
Then the guitar was in my hand
Everybody's singin' with their soul
Can see the release on all their faces
But they knew it was time to go
They left me there.
In the cold gray dawn.
I felt like a man walking in his sleep
Headed back to my car.
But now I had a shotgun rider
She said: I ain't goin far
I hope you remember what you've seen here.
Boy, as long as you live.
I'm gonna have to leave you now
But you've got something to give
