Lyrics

Underneath these stage lights
I feel so good inside
Got no need to ask myself
about what I do and why
An strange as this life may seem
it's really quite divine

Funny how six strings and wood
still suit this woman fine

And I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye

Now and then I ask myself
would I still be alive
If I went to work at nine
and punched the clock at five?
And I know the answer would be
chiseled in stone
I may be crazy, but I am my mama's own

I've been from Boston baby yeah out to East L.A.
Ain't seen much glory lately, but everything's o.k.
An I've come to see this life, in a different kind of light
Ain't got much money but I'm more than gettin' bye

And I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye

I've learned to take a damn good punch
and get up here and smile
An thanks to you it just don't take much
before it's all worth while
Something in your eyes that makes me
glad I went the mile
Funny how six strings and wood
still suit this woman fine

And I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye

I've been from Boston baby yeah out to East L.A.
Ain't seen much glory lately, but everything's o.k.
An I've come to see this life, in a different kind of light
Ain't got much money but, I'm more than gettin' bye

And I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye
I'm gettin' bye


Gettin' Bye - Naked & alone C.D.
