The Allman Brothers Band One Way Out Lyrics

Last updated: 09/17/2012 02:16:15 PM

LIVE FILLMORE CONCERTS VERSION

Ain't but ... one way out, baby ... Lord, I just can't go out the door
Ain't but ... one way out, baby ... and Lord, I just can't go out the door
For there's a man down there ... might be your man I don't know

Lord, you got me trapped woman ... up on the second floor
If I get by this time I won't be ... trapped no more
So raise your window, baby ... I can ease out soft and slow
And Lord, your neighbors, no they won't be
Talkin' that stuff that they don't know ... no!

Oh!

Whoa!

Lord, I'm foolish ... to be here ... on the first place
I know some man gonna walk in ... and take my place-uh
Ain't no way in the world ... I'm goin' out that front door
For there's a man down there ... might be your man ... I don't know
For there's a man down there ... might be your man ... I don't know
For there's a man down there ... Lawd, it just might happen to be your man
Oh, and it juss-a a might be your man ... mmm-mm-mmm-mm
Lawd, it juss-a might be your man
Oh, baby, I just don't know

Oh, you tell me!

One of their best | Reviewer: Mike Grimes | 9/15/12

The dual lead guitar in this song is by two of the greatest guitarists of all time. Duane Allman (the greatest) has the larger of the two parts. He is predominantly in the left channel playing the slide guitar. More towards the right channel is Dickie Betts (third greatest). If you want to hear more of this listen to the albums "At Fillmore East" (1971) and "Eat A Peach" (1972). There are others but these two are the best. To hear Duane playing the tracks have to have been recorded before he died in October 1971.

the greatest | Reviewer: anya | 5/11/07

this is the greatest Southern rock song ever because of the wailing and the frustration and the guitars. I never tire of hearing it. Radio stations should play THIS instead of the boring Ramblin Man!
