Rock & A Hard Place

By Rolling Stones

Rock & A Hard Place

Steel Wheels

The fields of Eden
Are full of trash
And if we beg & we borrow & steal
We'll never get it back
People are hungry
They crowd around
And the city gets bigger as the country comes begging to town

Stuck between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock & a hard place

This talk of freedom
And human rights
Meaans bullying & private wars & chucking all the dust into our eyes
And peasant people
Poorer than dirt
Who are caught in the crossfire with nothing to lose but their shirts

You'd better stop put on a kind face
Between a rock & a hard place

We're in the same boat
On the same sea
And we're sailing south
On the same breeze
Guiding dream churches
With silver spires
And our rogue children
Are playing loaded dice


Give me truth now
Don't want no sham
I'd be hung drawn & quartered for a sheep just as well as a lamb
