Nowhere To Go

A late night, jazz-tinged blues about those years when everything seems to go wrong. In this case, 2001 sucked. For that matter, so did 2002. Smoky, Hammond B-3 arrangement by Ben Partain. Reggie Houston lights it up again on tenor.
Nowhere to Go

I ate lunch at a Chinese restaurant
to get my fortune cheap.
A waiter came by and read my fortune,
then tossed that cookie at me.
Then I went back to the office.
And my boss was waiting for me.
she said, “I always knew that you’d go far!”
as her guards threw me in the street.

I got nowhere to go
nowhere to go
nowhere to go but up from here

When I got home to my house,
I climbed to the top of the stair.
Found my wife makin’ love to another man,
who asked if I wanted to share.
So, I drove to the middle of the St. Johns’ bridge
and climbed up over the rail.
I found twenty men wearing wedding rings,
hangin’ by their fingernails.

They got nowhere to go
nowhere to go
nowhere to go but up from here

I fell to my knees and cried out loud,
sayin, “Lord, why’d she do this to me!”
He said, “If me or your wife said were to take you back now,
who are you gonna believe?”
You got nowhere to go
nowhere to go
nowhere to go but up from here
