Song Lyric Sunday – The Sopranos

This week Jim Adams has prompted us with songs from a TV Show for Song Lyric Sunday. I was a big fan of The Sopranos (including the reruns!) and always loved this theme song. The great thing was they always played it in its entirety before the start of the show.

Lyrics
Woke Up This Morning
by Alabama 3


Well, you woke up this morning
Got yourself a gun
Your mama always said you'd be the chosen one
She said, you're one in a million, you've got to burn to shine
But you were born under a bad sign with a blue moon
in your eyes
And you woke up this morning
All that love had gone
Your papa never told you about right and wrong
But you're looking good, baby
I believe you're feeling fine (shame about it)
Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes
you woke up this morning
Got a blue moon in your eyes
Woke up this morning
You got a blue moon in your eyes
Well, you woke up this morning
The world turned upside down
Lord above, thing's ain't been the same
since Howlin' Wolf walked into your town
But you're one in a million, you've got that shotgun shine
Born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes
You woke up this morning
You got a blue moon in your eyes
Woke up this morning
You got a blue moon in your eyes
When you woke up this morning everything was gone
By half past ten your head was going ding-dong
Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes,
Like a voice trying to tell you there's something
you should know
Last night you were flying but today you're so low
Ain't it times like these that make you wonder if
you'll ever know
The meaning of things as they appear to the others
Wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers
Don't you wish you didn't function, don't you wish
you didn't think beyond the next paycheck
And the next little drink?
Well, you do, so make up your mind to go on
'cause when you woke up this morning
Everything you had was gone, everything you had was gone
Woke up this morning
Woke up this morning
Woke up this morning, you want to be, you want to be
the chosen one tonight
Yes, you know, because you just get help yourself
Woke up this morning
Woke up this morning
Woke up this morning
You got yourself a gun, got yourself a gun, got yourself a gun

    Great choice! Love that intro and never got tired of Tony’s drive through the gritty city to his Jersey mansion.

      It’s a classic Lisa. Gory but with humor. It is/was life in N J
