Aerosmith Back In The Saddle Lyrics

Last updated: 10/14/2013 08:42:41 AM

I'm back
I'm back in the saddle again
I'm back
I'm back in the saddle again

Ridin' into town alone
By the light of the moon
I'm looking for ol Sukie Jones
She crazy horse saloon
Barkeep gimme a drink
That's when she caught my eye
She turned to give me a wink
That make a grown man cry

I'm back in the saddle again
I'm back
I'm back in the saddle again
I'm back

Come easy, go easy
All right until the rising sun
I'm calling all the shots tonight
I'm like a loaded gun
Peelin' off my boots and chaps
I'm saddle sore
Four bits gets you time in the racks
I scream for more
Fools' gold out of their mines
The girls are soaking wet
Not tongue's drier than mine
I'll come when I get back

I'm back in the saddle again
I'm back
I'm back in the saddle again
I'm riding, I'm loading up my pistol
I'm riding, I really got a fistful
I'm riding, I'm shining up my saddle
I'm riding, this snake is gonna rattle

I'm back
I'm back in the saddle again
I'm back
I'm back in the saddle again

Ridin' high
Ridin' high
Ridin' high already

Greatest Hard Rock Album Of All Time | Reviewer: joetoronto | 10/13/13

What an album, Aerosmith truly at their peak.

By the way, Rocks was released in 1976, Joe and Brad didn't leave until after Draw The Line, in 1977.

So there's no way this song was about reuniting with them as they hadn't even left yet.

It all comes together | Reviewer: Brooke | 6/26/12

The screamin' lyrics are only one half of the awesome package that is Aerosmith! There's the combined skill of Joe, Tom, Brad and Joey to back Steven up. Put it all together and you have one, rockin', energized song! This song can easily make it into the list of 'Best Rock Songs by Aerosmith'. The ballads are great and emotional; but this is real Aerosmith to me. I heard this is one of the first songs the band wrote when they got back together after five years without Joe and Brad, and, if so, it was a perfect comeback: Aerosmith style.

Perfect metaphor for coming back from a breakup | Reviewer: Jim Teeters | 2/12/08

Just a great word play about bringing your game back on line after a nasty breakup with a controlling beahhhhch. Time to take 5 with a worthy wench -- Sookie Jones -- for some wild rough sex and consolation -- a recharging, if you will, with a girl who's my match in desires and actions, but with the need to breath and a refusal to commit.

Seb. Bach & Axl Rose version | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/27/07

have you guys heard the new Back in the Saddle cover done by Sebastian Bach of Skid Row featuring Axl Rose?

screaming in the saddle | Reviewer: john | 5/16/06

Wow! What a song! This is probably the best three and a half minute rock song ever written. It is a holocaust of sex and lust and tension and masterful song writing. They use to open up with this song back in the seventies, with the theme song from the movie "Psycho" pumping throught the PA. Steve Tyler screamed like a black widow demon spider with a pale white face and the show was off. This was so powerful a moment that no matter who opened for them, you quickly forgot about the other band and their four part harmonies. It was all over.
