The Allman Brothers Band High Cost Of Low Living

You’re the life of the party, everybody’s host

Still you need somewhere you can hide

All your good time friends

And your farewell to has-beens

Lord knows, just along for the ride

You think you’re a survivor

But boy, you better think twice

No one rides for nothin’

So, step up and pay the price

It’s the high cost of low livin’

Ain’t it high time, you turn yourself around?

Yeah, the high cost of low livin’

Is bound to put you six feet in the ground

So many here who love you

But still, you just can’t tell

The real ones and those who drop your name

All the while behind your back

They lift the flesh right from your bones

You should know by now, we’re all fair game

You’ve been chasing each dream with whiskey

From here to Tokyo

Usin’ up all your real friends

Places left to go

It’s the high cost of low livin’

Ain’t it high time, you turn yourself around?

Yeah, the high cost of low livin’

Is bound to put you six feet in the ground

Don’t look behind you

Ahh, don’t look back

Don’t try to find reason in the past

Past is gone, gone at last

It’s high cost of low livin’

It’s high time you turn yourself around

Well, the high cost of low livin’

Is bound to put you six feet in the ground

The Allman Brothers Band Maydell

Fatal beauty, the chokin’ kind

Dangerous feeling in this heart of mine

How can you love me

And treat me so unkind

You got me floppin’ like a fish in a pan

Ain’t no way to treat your man

Maydell

Baby won’t you please love me

Maydell, you sure put the squeeze on me

I don’t know why I love you,

You put me through hell

I can’t break your spell, Maydell

Fire spreads quick through the neighborhood

Talk is cheap if the story’s good

Nobody said you did, but everybody said that you would

You got me feelin’ like a dog, chasin’ his tail

I’ll never catch you – you play the game too well

Maydell

Baby won’t you please love me

Maydell, you sure put the squeeze on me

I don’t know why I love you,

You put me through hell

I can’t break your spell, Maydell

Every time I try to walk away,

Just walk away

You bat them eyes, beg me to stay,

Honey won’t you stay

Ruby red lips, callin’ my name

Forget about the sorrow and the shame

Maydell

Every time I try to walk away,

Just walk away

You bat them eyes, beg me to stay,

Honey won’t you stay

Ruby red lips, callin’ my name

Forget about the sorrow and the shame

Maydell

Maydell

Baby won’t you please love me

Maydell, you sure put the squeeze on me

I don’t know why I love you,

You put me through hell

I can’t break your spell, Maydell
