Show Me the Back Door

When I first heard this song I really wanted to change the chord progression at the end of the chorus because it sounded wrong to me. Now I can’t even figure out what exactly I wanted to change, let alone how. I still think the musical interludes are too long though. Despite that, I love this song. I think because I can’t help but mentally associate it with Captain Kirk. This is like the theme song of Jim Kirk’s life and I wish there was a fanvid to that effect. As there is not you’ll just have to have this version. Try to enjoy yourselves anyway.

I was scared and fearing for my life
I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
Cause he was lean, mean, big and bad, Lord
Pointin’ that gun on me.

Oh, wait a minute, mister
I didn’t even kiss her
Don’t want no trouble with you
And I know you don’t owe me
But I wish you’d let me
Ask one favour from you.

Oh, won’t you
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
And you’ll never see me no more.
