Bonnie Raitt

Bonnie Lynn Raitt (born November 8, 1949) is a renowned American blues singer-songwriter and slide guitar player. During the 1970s, Raitt released a series of acclaimed roots-influenced albums which incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk and country, but she is perhaps best known for her more commercially accessible recordings in the 1990s including "Nick of Time", "Something to Talk About", "Love Sneakin' Up on You", and the slow ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me". Raitt has received nine Grammy Awards in her career and is a lifelong political activist. more »

I'm walkin' through the summer nights
Jukebox playing low
Yesterday everything was goin' too fast
Today it's moving too slow

I got no place left to turn
I got nothing left to burn
Don't know if I saw you
If I would kiss you or kill you
It probably wouldn't matter to you anyhow
You left me standin' in the doorway cryin'
I got nothing to go back to now

Maybe they'll get me, and maybe they won't
But not tonight and it won't be here
There are things that I could say but I don't
I know the mercy of God must be near

I've been ridin' the midnight train
I got ice water in my veins

I would be crazy if I took you back
It would go up against any rule
You left me standin' in the doorway cryin'
Sufferin' like a fool

When the last rays of daylight go down
Buddy you're older no more
I can hear church bells ringin' in the yard
I wonder who they're ringin' for

Oh I know I can't win
But my heart, it just won't give in

I see nothin' to be gained by any explanation
There are no words that need to be said
You left me standin' in the doorway cryin'
Blues wrapped around my head
