Never Make Your Move Too Soon (Ry Cooder)

Three days of snow out in Birmingham Thought you would wonder where I am Called up your number all night long No consolations on the telephone Ran out and caught that midnight flight Thought a little loving would make everything all right But, no! Landlord said you'd moved away And left me all your bills to pay It's too bad, baby, you might have made your move too soon I think you might have made your move too soon, girl Now, look here Left me out here with a Keno card Life in Vegas really ain't so hard Ran it up to about fifty grand Cashed it in and held it in my hand That kinda money gets the word around And makes a lost love come up found I hear you knocking, baby, at my door You ain't living here no more I tried to tell you before But you made your move too soon Now I'm gonna play! All right, now I'm just going to tell you one more thing Well, I've been from Texas down to Tokyo Okinawa back to Ohio Never tried to make the news I'm just a man that loves to play the blues Take my guitar everywhere Now, if you people don't like it, I really don't care Crowd jumps up and the band falls down Love to see us rolling into town Because the people know, well, we never make our move too soon Never make your move too soon Ya made your move too soon, girl Ya made your move too soon, baby, babe I think ya made your move too soon Let's hear it for all the chickens that died in the heat wave Two millions chickens, God almighty In Arkansas, down in Oklahoma, by God Texas, Arizona
