Never Make A Move Too Soon

Album: Midnight Believer (1978)

  • Three days of snow in Birmingham
    Thought you would wonder where I am
    Rang our number all night long
    It's no comfort on the telephone
    Ran out and caught a midnight flight
    Thought a little love would make everything all right
    The landlord said, "You moved away"
    And left me all your bills to pay"
    Look out baby, you might have made your move too soon

    Left me with a Keno card
    This life in Vegas sure ain't hard
    I ran it up to about fifty grand
    Cashed it in and held it in my hand
    That kind of word can get around
    And make a lost love come up found
    I hear you knocking baby at my door
    But you know you ain't living here no more
    It's too bad
    I think you made your move too soon

    I've been from Spain to Tokyo
    From Africa to Ohio
    I never tried to make the news
    I'm just a man who plays the blues
    I take my lovin' everywhere
    I came back, and they still care you know
    One love ahead
    One love behind
    One in my arms and one on my mind
    It's one thing baby
    I never make my move too soon

    I've been from Spain to Tokyo
    From Africa to Ohio
    I never tried to make the news
    I'm just a man who plays the blues
    I take my lovin' everywhere
    I come back, you know they still all care
    One love ahead and one behind
    One in my arms you know, one on my mind
    And it's one thing people
    I never make my move too soon Writer/s: Nesbert Jr. Hooper, Will Jennings
