The Allman Brothers Band

The Allman Brothers Band is an American rock/blues band once based in Macon, Georgia. The band was formed in Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar) and Gregg Allman (vocals, organ, songwriting), plus Dickey Betts (lead guitar, vocals, songwriting), Berry Oakley (bass guitar), Butch Trucks (drums), and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson (drums). While the band has been called the principal architects of Southern rock, they also incorporate elements of blues, jazz, and country music, and their live shows have jam band-style improvisation and instrumental songs. more »

Can you tell me, tell me, friend, just exactly where I've been? 
Is that so much to ask I'll pay you back no matter what the task 
You seem really sure 'bout something I don't know,
Take that load off, looks like chest's about to go
Your wasted words already been heard, are you really god, yes or no? 

Well, all day and half the night you're walkin' round lookin' such a fright
Good is it me or is it you?
I'd make a wager and I'd hope you lose 
Time's gone, looks like Rome is 'bout to fall,
Next time take the elevator, please don't crawl
Your wasted words so absurd, are you really Satan, yes or no? 
Tell me now baby?
Ooh hoo
Oh

Well, I ain't no saint and you sure as hell ain't no savior
Every other Christmas I would practice good behavior
That was then, this is now, don't ask me to be mister clean
Baby, I don't know how 
Ring my phone 'bout ten more times, we will see,
Find that broke down line and let it be 
Your wasted words will never be heard, go on home baby and watch it on TV 

Weekday soap-box specialty, you know what I'm talkin' 'bout now
By the way, this song's for you, sincerely, me
