"I Ain't Hiding" as written by and Christopher Robinson....
Rust on my pickups
And blood on the stage
Seeds in the ashtray
And coke on the blade
N-Y-C delivers that's a guarantee
The only thing that keep the day from me

Line at the bathroom
Line at the bar
Take it outside and do the rest in the car
Our candy baby's in a bright light fright
Rock and roll rat race everybody's uptight
That's right

Ain't your saint, ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby I ain't hiding

Stayed on the dance floor cause you can't find the door
Can't run out cause there is always more
Keep on rocking cause it's not even four
Turn up the bass until your ears get sore

Ain't your saint, ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby I ain't hiding

I ain't your saint, ain't your enemy
I'm a long shadow on the highway
I know this ain't how it's supposed to be
Baby I ain't hiding
Baby I ain't hiding
Baby I ain't hiding
Baby I ain't
Baby I ain't hiding

    General CommentI agree! Fortunately, it's only a few days from now.

    I believe this song is a kinda ballsy soundtrack for a party scene where the drug use, namely lines of cocaine, is running rampant as the party-goers are getting more shameless & more distant from the dangers of it - hence the "I ain't hiding."

    General CommentBaW, WaWaWaWaW ... BaW, WaWaWaWaWaWaWaW

    I agree with both ejc and PinsNeedles. "Funk" and "party" are 2 words that come to mind while listening to this tune. The song is about New York City party life, perhaps a tribute to the late 1970s and Studio 54.

    When I first heard this song on the radio I loved it, but I had no idea who it was. When I found out it's by the Black Crowes, I was shocked. This song is so different from the southern-rock sound the Black Crowes have become known for. And I hope the haters keep their mouths shut, and enjoy this song for what it is (funky and retro), and what it's not (the modern southern-rock-blues sound the Crowes helped pioneer, and bands like the Kings of Leon have began to imitate, and progress).

    The rest of the album "Before The Frost" is nothing like this song. So props to the Crowes for trying something different for this tune, I think they pulled it off very well. I think this song has the '70s written all over it, like David Bowie re-imagined or something.
