Stevie Ray Vaughan - Crossfire (Official Video)


Music video by Stevie Ray Vaughan performing Crossfire. (C) 1989 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT



In Step was Stevie's first album after he stopped drinking, and is dedicated to sobriety. The album title is a reference to the 12-step program for alcoholics. The songs on the album refer to the pressures of life that lead to alcohol abuse, but show how you can still rock out even when you are sober.


This was written by the Austin-based songwriter Bill Carter and his wife/songwriting partner Ruth Ellsworth. The pair also wrote "Willie The Wimp" for Vaughan and "Why Get Up?", which was recorded by The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Carter was in a band with Johnny Depp called P! in the mid-'90s.


Tommy Shannon, Chris Layton and Reese Wynans, all of whom were members of Vaughan's band Double Trouble, also got songwriting credits on this track.







Lyrics


Day by day, night after night

Blinded by the neon light

Hurry here, hustlin' there

No one's got the time to spare


Money's tight, nothin' free

Won't somebody come and rescue me?


I am stranded, caught in the crossfire

Stranded, caught in the crossfire


Tooth for tooth, eye for an eye

Sell your soul just to buy, buy, buy

Beggin' for a dollar, stealin' a dime

Come on, can't you see that I—


I am stranded, caught in the crossfire

I am stranded, caught in the crossfire


I need some kind of kindness

Some kind of sympathy. Oh, no

We're stranded, caught in the crossfire


Save the strong lose the weak

Never turning the other cheek

Trust nobody, don't be no fool

Whatever happened to the golden rule?


We got stranded, caught in the crossfire

We got stranded, caught in the crossfire

We got stranded, caught in the crossfire

Stranded, caught in the crossfire

Help me
