except you lyrics – paul butterfield blues band

thought i had you in the palm of my hand
’cause you said i was your loving man
thought i was the king of the world
’cause you told me you’d be my girl
but that was a long time ago
when in winter the gr*ss was green
nothing seem the way it seem
except you, except you

thought i was ahead of my time
love was all i had on my mind
but that was a long time ago
when at night i saw the sun
nothing and, oh, nothing
except you, except you, babe

you have dreams and schemes
but life was a burning cinder
all i needed was you, out of sight
and i can tell her, ooh

look at all the things that i own
a house, a car, a paid up loan
flowers blooming in my yard
and i knew it wouldn’t be so hard
but that was a long time ago

when the rain was so fresh and clear
all i wanted was right here
except you, babe
except you, except you, babe
ooh, except you, ooh, babe
