Go out yonder, peace in the valley Come downtown, have to rumble in the alley Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in
Has anybody seen my lady This living alone will drive me crazy Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in
I'm gonna go down by the water But I ain't gonna jump in, no, no I'll just be looking for my maker And I hear that that's where she's been? Oh
Out of nine lives, I spent seven Now, how in the world do you get to Heaven Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in
I just spent sixty days in the jailhouse For the crime of having no dough, no, no Now here I am back out on the street For the crime of having nowhere to go
Save your neck or save your brother Looks like it's one or the other Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in
Now two young kids might start a ruckus You know they feel you trying to shuck us Oh, you don't know the shape I'm in

Jim from Long Beach, CaThis is one of the highlight of "The Last Waltz". Richard Manuel R.I.P. my brother.........
Lafite from Ottawa, OnOne of my favorite songs by The Band. Richard Manuel's vocal is great on this. Too bad his contribution to the band was limited by his alcoholism and mental state. A band with 3 great lead singers. What a luxury.
Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
