Lyrics

I Always Land On My Feet

I jumped bond in Atlanta
I'd been set up in a crooked game
I let 'em know I was nobody's fool
And some other fool got maimed
I was one step ahead of the repo man
Two jumps ahead of the law
When my contraband ride sputtered and died
Just outside of Chickasaw

Sometimes I feel like I'm flying
Like a cat about to hit concrete
Rock bottom comin' at me like a freight train, Baby
But I always land on my feet

I left that caddy to rust in the swamp
And I hitch hiked to new orleans
I knew bettilu meant shelter
If i could reach her by any means
The quarter was full of surprises
I tried to reach her there by phone
I told the other mule that answered
The number I dialed must be wrong

Sometimes I feel like I'm flying
Like a cat about to hit concrete
Rock bottom comin' at me like a freight train,
But I always land on my feet

When it all hits the fan and the world goes tilt
Somebody ‘s screamin’ and blood‘s been spilt
Divin’ through a window just ahead of the heat
Let me tell you people ‘bout the trouble I meet

I caught a semi to memphis
Took a job and i changed my name
I was breakin’ my back for the foreman
Loadin’ freight come sun or rain
One day i looked up from my burden
There came a marshall with a picture of me
By the time he hit the dock with the foreman
Brother, I was history


Sometimes i feel like i'm flying
Like a cat about to hit concrete
Rock bottom comin' at me like a freight train,
But I always land, I always land, I always land on my feet
