Baby Step Back  Gordon Lightfoot

in 1981.

Now it [Em]looks to me like the same old place,
In the sky it [D]looks like [Em]rain.
The [A]same old town with the same old streets,
The address has not [Em]changed.
You can [A]find me there with the door shut tight
And the one wish [D]that re[Em]mains..
[A]Baby step back, baby step back.
Either step up or step [Em]back.

No, you [Em]know I don't write no bad checks,
I have no wish [D]to re[Em]pent.
[A]I've seen a few, but whatever I do,
I don't cause no acci[Em]dents.
[A]Whiskey and wine help me pass the time,
I don't leave [D]no evi[Em]dence.

Still, I [Em]don't kneel down, I was born to fight,
So you'd best leave [D]me a[Em]lone.
[A]Maybe I'll get much more than I need,
Or much less than I should [Em]own.
[A]Last of all let me say it again,
either step up [D]or step [Em]on.
An eighties hit from Kraziekhat.
