Lyrics

Too Young to Die © Earl.C.Webb 2013

I'm saying a little prayer in the hope that I get heard
I know I've been a sinful man but could I have a word
My hearts been full of treachery, it's true I've been a cheat
I know I was unfaithful, all the lies and the deceit

I'm in a sticky situation; word must have got around
Seems like everybody knows, now I'm a stranger in my town
And they're all out to get me, please help me out, you must
They ain't never gonna rest until I'm lying in the dust

Save me, save me from this grizzly end
I'm sitting in this bar with these rednecks giving me the evil eye
Well sticks and stones will break my bones
There'll be nothing left of me to carry back home
I know I done wrong but I'm much too young to die.

So, I promise to be faithful and I swear that I'll be good
By putting right the things I did, undo them if I could
Return to me my family, and give me back my wife
I promise that I'll serve you for all my natural life

And I'll give it all to charity, go out and feed the poor
Go to worship on a Sunday till I can't give you any more
I know it's retribution for everything done
But I've no one else to turn to; there's nowhere left to run

Save me, save me from this grizzly end
I'm sitting in this bar with these rednecks giving me the evil eye
Well sticks and stones will break my bones
There'll be nothing left of me to carry back home
I know I done wrong but I'm much too young to die

Now I know I didn't talk to you when everything was fine
And I know we're all 'believers' when our life is on the line
I've always found it difficult to accept there is someone
But it's easier when you're staring down the barrel of a gun (Repeat choruses)

Catchy. Great story. Heartfelt. Nice harmonies. Drummer and harp player are killin' it!

Terrific country song with superb vocal, instrumentation, arrangement, etc.
Great song!

REMINDS ME OF EVE OF DESTRUCTION...GREAT USE OF HARMONICA ..I CAN ONLY LIKE THIS BECAUSE THIS TYPE OF SONG IS RIGHT UP MY STREET ..REALLY NICE SONG..WELL SUNG AND GREAT BACKING WELL RECORDED
