Gimme Three Steps
Woo

I was cutting the rug down at a place called The Jug
With a girl named Linda Lou
When in walked a man with a gun in his hand
And he was looking for you-know-who
He said, "Hey there fellow with the hair colored yellow
Whatcha trying to prove?
'Cause that's my woman there and I'm a man who cares
And this might be all for you"
I said, "Excuse me"

I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
'Cause he was lean and mean and big and bad, Lord
A-pointing that gun at me
"Oh, wait a minute, mister, I didn't even kiss her
Don't want no trouble wit' chu
And I know you don't owe me, but I wish you would let me
Ask one favor from you"

"Oh, won't you give me three steps, gimme three steps, a-mister
Gimme three steps towards the door?
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, a-mister
And you'll never see a-me no more"
For sure

Well, the crowd cleared away and I began to pray
And the water fell on the floor
And I'm telling you son, well, it ain't no fun
Staring straight down a forty-four
Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou
And that's the break I was looking for
And you could hear me screaming a mile away
As I was headed out towards the door

"Oh, won't you give me three steps, gimme three steps, a-mister
Gimme three steps towards the door?
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, a-mister
And you'll never see a-me no more"
Show me the back door
