Jerry Jeff Walker — Help Me Now lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

Hear me now and use your love to listen well
'Cause I'm trying to tell you why I know
It's time for me to go

I drifted into the city to sing my songs of the gypsy life
Be free, be kind, be strong
I sang at walls and you came down to hold my head
When the concrete beat me down
And we rested high in a nest in the wall
Forgetting it all

So help me now, I do believe I am sinkin' down
Yes, I'm back on the ground and I've found
I'm bound to travel on
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/jerry-jeff-walker-help-me-now-lyrics.html ]
You've only asked me to let you know whenever I had to go
I'm trying to let you know I'll soon be gone
I want it clear and my thoughts in here
So you'll know you're not to blame

It's those cats upstairs who handle my songs
How they string me along
Lovin' someone is to love someone
Forever is the moment you're in
A woman's a world a man can rest inside
It's a love that's sown with dreams
That the city keeps tearin' on down
And can't you see what you are lovin' in me
Is my will to be free

So help me now to understand
I'm a free born man and I do love you so
But now it's time for me to go
