Sonny Tackett – Laid Back lyrics

Verse 1
Don't care if the northwinds blowing, cold outside
Don't mind if the rest of the world just drifts, right on by.
Let that ole hootowl holler, over in the cottonwood tree,
Cause baby all that matters, is you and me
As long as I'm already here I'll just keep you company,

And I'm Just, Laid Back, thinkin bout you and me,
Laid back, thinkin bout you and me.
[Verse 2:]...
Used to think that the day wasn't long enough, to get things done,
Lost a lot of good times, I was always on the run.
Lately I've been thinkin, I need a hideaway,
You're about the only thing on my mind these days.
The best things in life, are things you never see,
And I'm just
Laid Back, thinkin bout you and me.
Laid Back, thinkin bout you and me.
Verse 3
Saw a big ole bluejay flyin south for the wintertime.
Make me wanna catch the next train, for the Mason Dixon line.
Standing in the doorway, looking down the road,
But you don't have to worry, cause I won't go.
You're the only woman, ever made me feel free,
And I'm just
Laid Back, thinking bout you and me.
Laid Back, thinkin bout you and me.

    In 1973 Gregg Allman released his solo album, "Laid Back". It became my favorite that year, and realizing there wasn't a song on it titled "Laid Back", I was inspired to write this song. I tried to capture the feel and mood of the album, as if it was to be included there and would so fit. I held it back for years from other artists, hoping to run into Gregg and he would record it. As it happened, it turned out that it was Greggs son Michael who recorded it, and I had the pleasure of producing the session. It was also on my self produced second cd, Outlaws Lament. It has been with me for over thirty years, and remains a staple in my live show to this day. Sonny T
