Lyrics

I got my head on a swivel tonight / Moving it from side to side 
I got my head on a swivel tonight / Out here we’re just trying to survive 
All I got is this shadow to hide in / Being cast by the mountain so black 
‘Cause once she burned us out of that mountain / There was nowhere for us to go back 
So I got my head on a swivel tonight / 'Cause that woman’s about to ride 
Yeah I got my head on a swivel tonight / And there’s nowhere here to hide 
Oh my father tried to raise up a good son / But I mocked him and I cursed his words 
And now the vultures in the valley surround me / And I’ll be theirs if that woman don’t find me first 

CHORUS - So I got my head on a swivel tonight 
Mom and papa can’t do nothing for us now 
I got my head on a swivel tonight 
And I’m ready to take that bow 
‘Cause that woman loves being a widow 
Swings that mountain, boy, like it’s a sickle 
So I got my head on a swivel tonight 

Wishing now I would have followed that sun / When fathers and sons headed west on the run 
But the fools talk had already begun / And there ain’t no way to run 
Once you’ve tasted the sugar on her tongue 

CHORUS - So I got my head on a swivel tonight 
Mom and papa can’t do nothing for us now 
I got my head on a swivel tonight 
And I’m ready to take that bow 
‘Cause that woman loves being a widow 
Swings that mountain, boy, like it’s a sickle 
And I’m stuck here out in the middle 
Of that woman and her sickle 
So I got my head, yeah I got my head on a swivel tonight
