"The Right Mistake" as written by and Robbie Robertson....
One man's trash is another man's treasure
One man's pain is another man's pleasure
Play too hard, play too rough
And someday someone's gonna call your bluff

Take a stroll off the deep end
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Took a stroll off the deep end

And I was just trying to make
The right mistake, the right mistake
I was only trying to make
The right mistake

Gotta change some old habits
Tryin' to turn a new leaf
I gotta stop chasing rabbits
But I got hooked beyond belief

Let it go, they told me
But I just couldn't hear their plea
Let it go, they warned me

And I'm just tryin' a make
The right mistake, the right mistake
I was only trying to make
The right mistake

You could be the perfect stranger
You could be from Illinois
You come around here courting danger
Making all that noise

And you know I'll be there
Tell me when the deal goes down
And you know I'll be there

'Cause I'm just tryin' to make
The right mistake, the right mistake
I was only trying to make
The right mistake
The right mistake
The right mistake
The right mistake
