Levon Helm – Chest Fever lyrics
I know she's a tracker
Any scarlet would back her
And they say she's a chooser
But I just can't refuse her
She was just there
But then she can't be here, no more

And as my mind unweaves
I feel the freeze down in my knees
But just before she leaves
She receives

She's been down in the dunes
And she's dealt with the goons
Now she drinks from the bitter cup
I'm trying to get her to give it up
She was just here
I fear she can't be here no more

And as my mind unweaves
I feel the freeze down in my knees
But just before she leaves
She receives

It's long, long when she's gone
I get weary holding on
Now I'm coldly fading fast
I don't think I'm gonna last, very much longer

"She's stoned", said the Swede
And the moon calf agreed
Well, I'm like a viper in shock
With my eyes in the clock
She was just there somewhere
And here I am again

And as my mind unweaves
I feel the freeze down in my knees
But just before she leaves
She receives
