What is this that I can't see
Cold as ice hands all over me
Stress my eyes and stretch my limbs
This is the way that death begins

Ooh, death, have mercy
Ooh, death, be easy
Ooh, death, just spare me over another year
another year...

Ooh, death, have mercy
Ooh, death, have mercy
Ooh, death, just spare me over another year

If you were a flower
What make death come
Cut you down so soon

If you were a flower
What make death come
Cut you down so soon

Ooh, death, have mercy
Ooh, death, be easy
Ooh, death, just spare me over another year

What is this that I can't see
Cold as ice hands all over me
Stress my eyes and stretch my limbs
This is the way that death begins

Ooh, death, have mercy
Ooh, death, be easy
Ooh, death, just spare me over another year

Ooh, death, have mercy
Aah, death, be easy
Ooh, death, just spare me over another year

I like him. Nice vibe, nice tone on this one, and anybody who does such a strong version of 'bring that thang back home' can't be all bad. :-)

Yah, that's why I'm here. Nice piece; till next time.
Enough already with the Harry Manx. Every time I hear him my rating goes down by one point. Boring.

I quickly glanced over your comment and briefly thought it said "Best in short dresses."
Yikes!
 
If you can work it, work it.

Is it just me but the (beautiful) lead guitar and the backing are just a tad out of tune with each other?
Sorry. As any bluesman will tell you, Death Don't Have No Mercy. Nice try though.
Stopped me in my tracks.
Perfect song for New Year's Day.
Why Bill...thanky kindly....

"Ooh, death, just spare me over another year..."

How'd you know today is my b-day?  Another year older but still have all my marbles (I think).  Also most of my teeth.  And I still have my health so what more could I ask?  Spare me over another year indeed.  {#Cheers}

Thank you for playing this for Mr. Petty. {#Cry}
Like non-talented Led Zeppelin featuring Mark Kn.... xD

Way too much Harry Manx on RP. His songs all sound the same.

 
By that, you mean they all sound great, correct? Just saw the man live with a string quartet, it was transcendental.

Like. Very Knopfler-like.
