Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt and David Lindley – Your Bright Baby Blues

Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt and David Lindley – Your Bright Baby Blues – Live at Red Rocks

One of his absolute best and with Bonnie Raitt on harmony, Lindley on steel guitar! It doesn’t get any better than this!

I’m sitting down by the highway
Down by that highway side
Everybody’s going somewhere
Riding just as fast as they can ride

I guess they’ve got a lot to do
Before they can rest assured
Their lives are justified
Pray to God for me baby
He can let me slide

‘Cause I’ve been up and down this highway
Far as my eyes can see
No matter how fast I run
I can never seem to get away from me

No matter where I am
I can’t help thinking I’m just a day away
From where I want to be
Now I’m running home, baby
Like a river to the sea

Baby, if you can see me
Out across this wilderness
There’s just one thing
I was hoping you might guess
Baby you can free me
All in the power of your sweet tenderness
Yeah (yeah)

Well, I can see it in your eyes
You’ve got those bright baby blues
You don’t see what you’ve got to gain
But you don’t like to lose

You watch yourself from the sidelines
Like your life is a game you don’t mind playing
To keep yourself amused
I don’t mean to be cruel, baby
But you’re looking confused

Baby if you can hear me
Turn down your radio
There’s just one thing
I want you to know
When you’ve been near me
I’ve felt the love stirring in my soul
Yeah (yeah)
Yes I have

It’s so hard to come by
That feeling of peace
This friend of mine said:
“Close your eyes, and try a few of these”

I thought I was flying like a bird
So far above my sorrow
But when I looked down
I was standing on my knees
Now I need someone to help me
Someone to help me please

Baby, if you need me
Like I know I need you
There’s just one thing
I’ll ask you to do
Take my hand and lead me
To the hole in your garden wall
And pull me through
