Shake Yourself Loose (T-Bone Burnett)

How much rope you gonna give yourself? How much slack do you need In order not to hang yourself up on the street? You say, you learned your lesson But I know that that ain't true When I see that feeling come over you But I don't blame you, baby, 'cause it really ain't no use I believe that you believe, you're searching for the truth I don't know what hold that rounder downtown has on you But keep on shaking, baby, till you shake yourself loose I'm not running away from trouble, I'm walking away from an accident Involving a personality double and a hole with a head in it Ain't nothing I can say, ain't nothing I can do When I see that feeling come over you But I don't blame you, baby, 'cause it really ain't no use I believe that you believe, you're searching for the truth I don't know what hold that rounder downtown has on you But keep on shaking, baby, till you shake yourself loose
