Alabama 3 – Woke Up This Mornin' lyrics

Gonna take you down
Deep To the Front line

You woke up this morning
Got yourself a gun
Mama always said you’d be
The Chosen One.

She said: You’re one in a million
You’ve got to burn to shine
But you were born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning
All the love has gone
Your Papa never told you
About right and wrong.

But you’re looking good, baby,
I believe you’re feeling fine,(shame about it),
Born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.

Woke up this morning
Got a blue moon in your eyes
(So sad Goddamn, Goddamn shame about it)
Woke up this morning
Got a blue moon in your eyes

You woke up this morning
The world turned upside down,
Thing’s ain’t been the same
Since the Blues walked into town.

But you’re one in a million
You’ve got that shotgun shine.
Born under a bad sign, shame about it
With a blue moon in your eyes.

Woke up this morning
Got a blue moon in your eyes
(So sad Goddamn, Goddamn shame about it)
Woke up this morning
Got a blue moon in your eyes

Just can't help your self

When you woke up this morning everything you had was
Gone. By half past ten your head was going ding-dong.
Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes,
Like a voice telling you there was something you should
Know. Last night you were flying but today you’re so low
- ain’t it times like these that make you wonder if
You’ll ever know the meaning of things as they appear to
The others; wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and
Brothers. Don’t you wish you didn’t function, wish you
Didn’t think beyond the next paycheck and the next little
Drink? Well you do so make up your mind to go on, ‘cos
When you woke up this morning everything you had was gone.

Woke up this morning,
Woke you woke up this morning,
Woke you woke up this morning,
You wanna be, You wanna be the Chosen One
Yeah You know it
Just can't help yourself, yeah

Woke up this morning,
Woke up this morning,
Woke up this morning,
Got yourself a gun
Got yourself a gun
Got yourself a gun
