I recall once upon a time Livin' was so easy and I felt so fine But, my, my, my right before my very eyes Satan came with fire to burn me Wouldn't listen when they warned me A dagger in my back while she's calling me honey Wouldn't stand back, for neither love nor money
Thirty minutes after my ship set sail She put up a sign and my house began to wail But, why, why, why I couldn't see it in my little girl's eyes? She had such a way to fool me, Lord she had a way to fool me And I would ask the woman, can you find it in yourself to please stand back? You ain't gonna rule me
Just when all began to fade I reached out, threw the ace of spades I put her on a train to the everglades
Now that it's all over and gone Somehow I just don't feel so alone But, lie, lie, lie it seemed like such a waste of time She did not ever seem to know me But, now it's much too late to show me But, if I ever see that woman walkin' down the street I'll just stand back And try to move away slowly Oh, yeah

Sparky from OzWas it Duane Allman who played Slide guitar on Stand Back ?
CoreyMy older brother bought this Album home and I played it on a Technics turn table with JBL speakers after half a joint of the best Columbian Gold and after hearing Stand Back we could not stop dancing
Mike from Hotlanta, GeorgiaGreat bass line by Mr. Berry Oakley...! I forever will remember Duane introducing a song onstage by saying, "Here's a little old number from our first album.....Berry starts her off........(whipping post...?) faint yell from audience ........yeah, you guessed it...."
Anthony from Bayonne, New JerseyIn my humble opinion one of the greatest slide guitarist to come along.
Vince from Lantana, FlWow what a powerful tune .......Classic Allman Bros.,,,,Rock on,,,,,,Vinny
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
