the wire lyrics – kenny wayne shepherd

“the wire”

if i were a crow, i wouldn’t have no fear of heights
for watching this old world’s fragile below
i don’t have a net, don’t have no jet wings, i can’t fly
if i miss a step, yeah, that’s how i’d go

oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
i ain’t looking down no more
on the wire, i don’t know why
tell me what i’m up here for

if i was a king, somebody would take the risk for me
i’ll just sit and watch them walk the line
but if my night burns out like a match in gasoline
if i take the fall, well, it’s all mine

oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
i ain’t looking down no more
up on the wire, i don’t know why
tell me what i’m up here for

oh, the wire keeps getting higher, keeps getting higher
i ain’t looking down no more
on the wire, i don’t know why
tell me what i’m up here for

higher, on the wire
tell me what i’m up here for
i’m on the wire, on the wire
i ain’t looking down no more
