"One Way Out" as written by and Marshall Sehorn Sonny Boy Williamson....
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
'Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know

Lord you got me trapped a 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
Talking that stuff that they don't know

Lord, I'm foolish to be here in the first place
I know some man gonna walk in and take my place
Ain't no way in the world, I'm going out that front door
'Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know
'Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know
'Cause there's a man down there and Lord, it might just happen to be your man

Lord, it just might be your man
Lord, it just a might be your man
Oh baby, I just don't know

    General CommentI can't believe this song doesn't have more comments! Truly a great song. There's a serious lack of blues-rock music out there. There should be more great songs like this.
