Eagles - Out of Control Lyrics

Out of Control
written: D. Henley, G. Frey, and T. Nixon
lead vocals: G. Frey
Live Video: BBC 1973

Oh, my, don’t the sky look spacious
With the stars all shinin’ down
Well, I can hear the night wind howlin’
It’s a high and lonesome sound
And I ain’t had a woman in so long
I need to feed my starvin' soul
Come on, saddle up, boys, we’re gonna ride into town
We’re gonna get a little out of control

There’s a card game in the corner
And the barmaid smiled at me
Well, I tipped her a sliver dollar
And she brought me a drink for free

All the town-folk call her the cheap one
And the gamblers call her Flo
Come on, set ’em up again, I got me a friend
And I think I’m gettin’ out of control
Oh, oh, oh

She’s cool water
Her mama taught her
I got news, she’s mine and mine alone

Well, if anybody’s lookin’ for trouble
You know I’m the one you want to try
Well, I’ll fight any man who wants you
And I don’t care who or why

You got to gamble on your story
You got no guts, you get no glory
And I’m bettin’ my money on an ace in the hole
I think I’m gettin’ out of control

You got it now!

Where's my baby, where'd she go?
