Only To Believe

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

I got a wartorn stripper
Keeps her price list in a loving cup
I got a wartorn stripper
Keeps her price list in a loving cup
I get so low at times
it's only to believe that I don't give it up

I look in all those faces
I hear words but no reply
I look in all those faces
I hear words but no reply
You want to be my baby?
You must be crazy, ain't no lie

Only to believe
It's only to believe
Only to believe and not
for any other reason I can see

I got consolidated rebop
Plush-lined veranda and a velvet cane
I got consolidated rebop
Laid out flat and
I call your name
If you had a lick of sense
you'd send me back directly where I came

Only to believe
It's only to believe
Only to believe and not
for any other reason I can see
