“Mean Old Night Sky” by Lou Shields

Woe, mean old night sky, fallin’ over me
Mmm.. let your night light guide my way
Oh, crawlin on through this, old muddy haze

I’ll be callin’ out your name
Mmm.. it took my voice now, hear me scream
Oh, I’ll make it on through this old broken dream

Star, light my way now, long fore day
Mmm.. howlin ol’ wind out, poundin’ on me
Oh, I hope they sent down, this storm for me

Yes, ya got me reelin’, on in some way
Mmm.. it was my last breath, when you found old me
Oh, on my back and sun shine on me

Day, found me right now, right next to you
Mmm. second lifetime light brought me through
Oh, drinkin’ your white wine and I’m black and blue

Yes, they got me good now, heal my wounds
mmm.. ain’t gonna break nobody’s fool
oh, safe cabin home and I’m right next to you
