Smack Dab

Music and Lyrics by Mary Ott Copyright 1996

I saw her walkin' after midnight
Smack Dab in the middle of the street
And if I'd asked her why she's walkin'
Smack Dab in the middle of the street
She would say...
My Daddy always used to tell me
If the forces want to get you
Make them come out of their shadows and their sleep
Smack Dab in the middle of the street.

Not dancin' with the devil
Not askin' for attack
Just want the freedom
To walk where I want to
Even if, even if even if that's
Smack Dab in the Middle of the Street.

Verse 2:
From an age old time
And a distant place.
She would sip red wine
While the moon shone on her face
She'd talk about her freedom
She would talk about her grace.
Angels and messengers
Standin' at the ready
This is what she'd say.

I'm walzing with wisdom
I am dancing with age.
Walkin' lines that fate come tell me,
Even if , even if, even if that's
Smack Dab in the Middle of the Street.
