Stevie Ray Vaughan: Caught in the Crossfire

For all those stranded, caught in the crossfire, because of COVID-19… and the US government response to give money to the corporations, leaving ordinary people to struggle.

Lyrics, Caught in the Crossfire

Day by day night after night
Blinded by the neon lights
Hurry here, hustlin’ there
No one’s got the time to spare
Money’s tight, nothin’ free
Won’t somebody come and rescue me
I am stranded
Caught in the crossfire
Stranded
Caught in the crossfire
Tooth for tooth, eye for an eye
Sell your soul just to buy, buy, buy
Beggin’ a dollar, stealin’ a dime
Come on, can’t you see that I
I am stranded
Caught in the crossfire
I am stranded
Caught in the crossfire
I need some kind of kindness
Some kind of sympathy, oh no

We’re stranded
Caught in the crossfire
Save the strong, lose the weak
Never turning the other cheek
Trust nobody, don’t be no fool
Whatever happened to the golden rule
We got stranded
Caught in the crossfire
We got stranded
Caught in the crossfire
We got stranded
Caught in the crossfire
Stranded
Caught in the crossfire
Help me
