Kickin' And Screamin'

Album: In Pieces (1993)
  • Well, I don't know what my uncle did
    But he must have done it right
    They sure strung him up one Saturday night
    He had spent his whole life fussin'
    Would have spent his last breath cussin'
    'Til he realized the deal was really done
    He started screamin' "hallelujah"
    Tryin' to make his peace with everyone
    Yeah, he was kickin' and screamin'
    Just like he came in
    He was kickin' and screamin', darlin'
    Right to the bitter end
    Ain't it funny how we come in kickin' giddyup
    And go out hollerin' whoa
    Lord, we never want to be here
    Sure don't ever want to go
    Well, I could hear those church bells ringin'
    To my best friend I was clingin'
    Screamin' "If you love me brother don't let me go"
    Well then the whole scene was repeated
    Two years later I begged and pleaded
    Screamin' "If you love me, honey,
    Now you know you wouldn't want to let me go"
    No, I didn't want to do it
    But I sure don't want to see it come undone
    Yeah, I was kickin' and screamin'
    Just like I came in
    I was kickin' and screamin', darlin'
    Right to the bitter end
    Ain't it funny how we come in kickin' giddyup
    And go out hollerin' whoa
    Lord, we never want to be here
    Sure don't ever want to go
    Yeah, I was kickin' and screamin'
    Just like I came in
    I was kickin' and screamin', darlin'
    Right to the bitter end
    Ain't it funny how we come in kickin' giddyup
    And go out hollerin' whoa
    Seems, we never want to be here
    Sure don't ever want to go Writer/s: TONY ARATA
