When I was a boy,
I thought it just came to ya'
But I never could tell what's mine
So it didn't matter anyway

My only pride and joy
Was this racket down here
Bangin' on an old guitar
And singin' what I had to say

I always thought our house was haunted
But nobody said boo to me
I never did get what I wanted
Now I get what I need

It's been a slow turnin'
From the inside out
A slow turnin'
But you come about

Slow learnin'
But you learn to sway
A slow turnin' baby
Not fade away

Now I'm in my car
I got the radio on
I'm yellin' at the kids in the back seat
'Cause they're bangin' like Charlie Watts

You think you've come so far
In this one horse town
Then she's laughin' that crazy laugh
'Cause you haven't left the parkin' lot

Time is short and here's the damn thing about it
You're gonna die, gonna die for sure
And you can learn to life with love or without it
But there ain't no cure

There's just a slow turnin'
From the inside out
A slow turnin'
But you come about

My favorite John Hiatt CD.... all GREAT versions of a wide range of his work. I actually saw him in a local concert-club during this tour.
Excellent choice, RP
SMOKIN' guitar!

Indeed.

Agreed, should have kept the tempo closer to the studio version.

Hiatt Supreme! - best served live and in concert!
One kick ass live Hiatt album.... thanks John!
I like most of John Hiatt's songs, but I never really liked this one.

Love John Hiatt live.
