Allman Brothers Band – Before The Bullets Fly Lyrics

You know I hate to leave you babe

But I just can’t waste my time….

Well you’ve got this jealous husband

And I’m far too young to die,

I must move on away from here

Just before the bullets fly

I’ve always been a gabler

Takin’ chances all my life….

Always smashin’ those love affairs

Just like shootin’ dice,

I staged the game girl

That’s what keeps me satisfied

And I can leave it in the nick of time

Just before the bullets fly

Solo

I lost my first bet

When I was twenty-one

Found myself in New Orleans

On the wrong end of a gun….

The stakes keep getting higher……

But somehow i Survive,

By knowin’ when the need became

Just before the bullets fly

I’m knowing when the need became

Just before the bullets fly

I’m knowing when the need became

Just before the bullets fly
