Slide Over Backwards Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh Lord
Verse 2
Ride over backwards
Ride over backwards
Ride over backwards
Ride over backwards
Verse 3
I was just a little girl
A-making my own way
16 years or more I had
Nothing left to say
Verse 4
I raised myself up almost
Lived on po'boys too
New Orleans ain't a place to live
If you never been to school
Verse 5
And I said
Ride over backwards
Slide over backwards
Ride over backwards
Let me ride
Verse 6
People gotta tell you
Slide over backwards
Slide over backwards
Ride over backwards
Let me ride
Verse 7
Daddy was a working man
He worked since he was 5
He dropped his wings on my train one day
And never learned to fly
Verse 8
I wonder what it takes to be
Someone who knows why
The earth ain't round
Unless you can
Teach yourself to fly
Verse 9
And I said
Ride over backwards
Slide over backwards
Slide over backwards
Let me ride
Verse 10
People gotta tell you
Slide over backwards
Slide over backwards
(Sometimes you gotta be free)
Slide over backwards
Let me ride
Verse 11
Some days in a lifetime you gotta be strong
Some days in lifetime you gotta be brave
Dig on your knees sometimes
Sometimes you even gotta pray
Verse 12
Lord what it is what it is
Verse 13
Sometimes I feel like I'm going down, going down
Going down for the very last time
Oh don't know what it is, don't know what it is
Sometimes I feel like going down
Verse 14
Deep in my heart I pray
Ride over backwards
