Someone Standing In Your Door (Sebastian/Levon Helm)


Someone's standing in your door, sheriff
I think he wants to come in
Someone's standing in your door, sheriff
He's looking green as spring
Though I must confess he may not be the world's best
Maybe less of a man than you
Though he might not out in a real shoot-out
Well, I betcha in a year or two...

There's someone standin' in your door, sheriff
You better teach him well
There's someone standin' in your door, sheriff
The folks in town can tell
You mess around with the sheriff
Gonna be hell to pay
But this kid disagrees with the sheriff
Almost everyday

Someone's standin' , someone's standin'
Someone's standin' in your door
