Sure As I'm Sittin' Here
written by John Hiatt

Get up; ya get down
Get lost and then ya get found
Sure as Iím sittiní here
Sure as Iím sittiní here

Ya get a laugh; ya get a cry
Get íem all before you die
Sure as Iím sittiní here
Sure as Iím sittiní here

Come on sit down, get down
Come-a-come-a sit down, get down
Sure as Iím sittiní here
Sure as Iím sittiní here

All the ladies hypnotize you
And all your friends, well they just patronize you
Donít God look forgot
Cause he just sittiní here
I think itís godís sick plan but itís not so clear

Lord you get the truth; you get lies
Get íem all before you die
Sure as Iím sittiní here
Sure as Iím sittiní here

You get the light; you get the dark
Fall in love and I break your heart
Sure as Iím sittiní here
Sure as Iím sittiní here

Come on sit down, get down
Come-a-come-a sit down, get down
Sure as Iím sittiní here
Sure as Iím sittiní here

Now it might seem confusing
With all you get, well look what all your loosing
But itís just life and it just goes on
So quit with your complaining soon enough you will be gone

Lord, Lord, Lord

Sure as Iím sittiní here
Sure as Iím sittiní here
