The Sidewinder


Lee Morgan Lyrics

 

The Sidewinder Lyrics

The Sidewinder Song Lyrics


I used to believe what money could bring
Was worth more than anything else
But all that changed when I had a dream
And I got a good look at myself

I stood face to face with the ghost of my past
And the spirit of what was to come
And they made it clear that one day I'd have to
Answer for what I had done

And I saw what I'd become

The choices you make, the chances you take
They'll follow you all of your life
I'm just tryin' to live so when I die
The preacher won't have to lie

I ain't no prophet and I ain't no saint
And I ain't made no great sacrifice
I just keep tryin' to carry my weight
I keep trying to do what is right

And it's hard to do right sometimes

But the choices you make, the chances you take
They'll follow you all of your life
I'm just tryin' to live so when I die
The preacher won't have to lie

The choices you make, the chances you take
They'll follow you all of your life
I'm just tryin' to live so when I die
The preacher won't have to lie

Oh, the preacher won't have to lie

And this all only during the first half of it. Lee Morgan – jazz performer, which is loved so much by lot of people. He is a classic of its time and is considered by many as the founder of a pair of sub-genres in jazz.
