Feel Alright
Steve Earle Lyrics


I was born my papa's son
A wanderin' eye and a smokin' gun
Now some of you would live through me
And lock me up and throw away the key
Or just find a place to hide away
Hope that I'll just go away, huh

I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
I'll bring you precious contraband
And ancient tales from distant lands
Of conquerors and concubines and
Conjurers from darker times
Betrayal and conspiracy
Sacrilege and heresy

Well I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
I feel alright, I feel alright tonight

I got every thing you want or need
Your darkest fear, your fondest dream
I ask you questions, tell you lies
Criticize and sympathize
Yeah but, be careful what you wish for friend
'Cause I've been to hell and now I'm back again

I feel alright, yeah I feel alright tonight
Yeah I feel alright, I feel alright tonight
Feel alright, feel alright

I was born my papa's son 
A wanderin' eye and a smokin' gun 
Now some of you would live through me 
Lock me up and throw away the key 
Or just find a place to hide away 
Hope that I'll just go away
I feel alright – I feel alright tonight

I'll bring you precious contraband 
And ancient tales from distant lands 
Of conquerors and concubines and 
Conjurers from darker times 
Betrayal and conspiracy 
Sacrilege and heresy

I got every thing you wont or need 
Your darkest fear, your fondest dream 
I ask you questions, tell you lies 
Criticize and sympathize 
Be careful what you wish for friend 
Because I've been to hell and now I'm back again

Or just find a place to hide away
Hope that I'll just go away, hah

I feel alright
I feel alright tonight
I feel alright
I feel alright tonight

And I'll bring you precious contraband
And ancient tales from distant lands
Of conquerors and concubines and
Conjurers from darker times
Betrayal and conspiracy
Sacrilege and heresy

And I feel alright
I feel alright tonight
I feel alright
I feel alright tonight

I got everything you won't need
Your darkest fear
Your fondest dream
I ask you questions
Tell you lies
Criticize and sympathize
Yeah, be careful what you wish for friend
Because I've been to hell
And now I'm back again

I feel alright
Yeah, I feel alright tonight
Yeah I feel alright
I feel alright tonight
I feel alright
Feel alright

I always thought Season 2 was the best, not sure about anyone else..it was a pleasure to watch (as was the entire show)..sometimes I wish I could take a pill to forget this show JUST so I can watch it again for the first time..cheers to all the wire fans..stay blessed!

@Henry Patrick Barker He was a show called "The Wire" played a drug councelor (excuse my spelling)

I disagree with your assessment....since I watched the show non stop for years I'm pleasantly surprised when I find something new....OR I've grown older with experience that I understand certain characters thinking and actions

@Henry Patrick Barker it was on season 2 of the HBO series "The Wire".

Henry Patrick Barker

This is a great song by a great writer but I'm seeing ALOT of The Wire comments and that's great too. I loved the point in which they used this song in the series and the season in which it was used. That second season is probably the least popular but it tells a very true story of what's happened in our country. Its about the downfall of the working class really. I happen to be born and raised in Baltimore, in a white, working class family (the part of the city where I grew up is no longer a tight knit neighborhood, its been "gentrified" and costs an arm and a leg to live in now). I saw many,any people lose their jobs at GM, Beth Steel and the docks and those jobs never returned. Meanwhile the drug problem and sheer amount of drugs has EXPLODED and its become so prevelant that it almost feels like its part of the fabric of the city. Are the two related? I don't know for sure but Im willing to take a guess. This city has been gutted of everything that once made it great. Now its either yuppies or corner boys, depending on the neighborhood. The cities blue collar nature is all but gone. I'm sure the story is the same all over the country. There's a difference between working and middle class. Us from the working class still struggled some but we went out and earned what we had and that created community. That's gone and I'm afraid is never coming back.

@Bill Hunt You're kidding, right? Right?

i dont think most people realize Steve Earle doesnt just sing this and cover the theme for the wire the last season, but he also played waylon in every season. The man who became Bubbles' s N/A sponsor.

dale

He was kindo of more than a sponsor. He had to get Bubs to realize that sober was one step. Helping others was another.
