Subject: Lyr req : don't let nobody tie you down
From: GUEST,Jean-Alain

I'm looking for the lyrics to "don't let nobody tie you down", a song that is featured on the country gazette's "hello operator, this is country gazette" CD.
I've been searching through the web without success and I would greatly appreciate any help.
Thanks.

Jean-Alain

This may be the song. It was popularized by the Steve Miller Band. This is the Spiritual version:

DON'T YOU LET NOBODY TURN YOU 'ROUND

CHORUS: Don't you let nobody turn you 'roun'
Don't you let nobody turn you 'roun'
Keep the straight and narrow way

I was at the river of Jordan
Baptism was egun
John baptized the multitude
But he sprinkled nary one

The baptis' they go by water
The methodes' go by lan'
But when they get to heaven
They'll shake other's hand

You may be a good baptis'
An' a good methode' as well
But if you ain't the pure in heart
Yo' soul is boun' for hell

Richie, it's a different song. Here's the sound clip for "Don't Let Nobody Tie You Down."

Here's what I think is sung by The Country Gazette in this video at YouTube. Note there is one questionable line.


DON'T LET NOBODY TIE YOU DOWN
Ronnie Light

1. The boss-man says, "Get busy,"
But he ain't busy, is he?
Don't let nobody push you 'round.
If he gets in your hair,
There's other jobs elsewhere.
Don't let nobody tie you down.

CHORUS: You won't be satisfied until
You see what's over one more hill
So if you'd be a free boy,(?)
Take this advice from me, boy:
Don't let nobody tie you down.

2. Don't sign no binding contracts
If someday you plan to make tracks.
Don't let nobody tie you down.
When a woman ties that knot,
You can't get out when things get hot,
So don't let nobody tie you down.

CHORUS TWICE

CODA: Don't let nobody push you 'round.

The line is not "So if you'd be a free boy". The correct line is "So if you're feet are free boy".
