Lord, I got somethin' to find that somethin' with
I feel like choppin', chips flyin' everywhere
I feel like choppin', chips flyin' everywhere

Don't feed that snake that turns on you, you starve it out that's what you do - Spirit Road, Neil Young

Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet, and I am you and what I see is me - Echoes, Roger Waters

People on the platforms waiting for the trains, I can hear their hearts a-beatin' like pendulums swinging on chains - Trying to Get to Heaven, Bob Dylan

Wednesday I watched the riot seen the cops out on the street, watched 'em throwin' rocks and stuff and chokin' in the heat - Trouble Every Day, Frank Zappa

Turn on the TV and what did I see, this bloated hairy thing winning a Grammy - Don Henley Must Die, Mojo Nixon

Thanks for the trouble you took from her eyes,
I thought it was there for good so I never really tried.

Well, like a withered stone
Fears will pierce your bones
You'll find out

I saw her from the corner when she turned and doubled back
And started walkin' toward a coffee colored Cadillac
I was pushin' through the crowd tryna get to where she's at
And I was campaign shouting like a southern diplomat

Nadine, honey is that you?
everytime I see you your up to something new

Although I don't really agree with it, one of my favorite lyrics has always been ...

I walk 47 miles of barbed wire
I use a cobra snake for a necktie
I got a brand new house on the roadside
Made from rattlesnake hide
I got a brand new chimney made on top
Made out of a human skull
Now come on take a walk with me Arlene
And tell me who do you love?

And a few more obvious ones...

Keith
Well i never kept a dollar past sunset/It always burned a hole in my pants

and Dylan again
How does it feel?/To be on your own/With no direction home
A complete unknown/Like a rolling stone

My Ma claim's that this happened when I turned 27, It was just too easy..

Then Keith said, "Our Fan's party harder than we ever did"

S":t really..

Bop bopa-a-lu a whop bam boo .... Little Richard

(Naah, just kidding winking smiley)

The first ever lyrics I quoted (in my 1973 thesis accompanied by the Stones logo):

Raise your glass to the hard working people
Let's drink to the uncounted heads
Let's think of the wavering millions
Who needs leading, but get gamblers instead

But "there are so many more beauties, I wouldn't know where to start ..."

“I met a gin-soaked bar room queen in Memphis...”

I still think it is one of the best lyrics ever. In 10 words you are transported into another world Springsteen-style.

100% agree. The most genius opening line ever.

thumbs up

and another from John Hiatt: 'Real Fine Love'

Well now I never went to college babe/I did not have the luck
Stole out of Indiana/ In the back of a pickup truck
No education higher/Than the streets of my hometown
I went looking for a fire just to burn it all down.
