High And Dry

Chas Cochran - © 2003 BMI

Don't leave me baby,
Don't leave me darlin' ,
Don't leave me baby,
High and dry.
With these windless sails, feelin' like a beached whale,
Got a tear in my eye,
I feel your love recedin', baby,
Don't leave me high and dry.

When I was younger, livin' on my own,
I was livin' a life of ease.
Then your love roared in,
Like a flood it poured in,
Knocked me to my knees.
Now I feel your love recedin', baby...
Don't leave me high and dry.

It's a cryin' shame...I guess I'm to blame...
I'm a fool who's born to lose...
Give me one more shot...give all I got,
Help me chase away these blues.

You deserve better...yes I know it's true,
I'm not worthy of your love...
You're the cat's meow,
Guess I'm a dog's bow wow..
What was I thinkin' of?
But I built my life around you, baby...
Don't leave me high and dry.

(Bridge)
