Grateful Dead - Samson & Deliliah lyrics

If I had my way If I had my way If I had my way I would tear this whole building down Delilah was a woman, she was fine and fair She had good looks, God knows and coal black hair Delilah, she gained old Samson's mind When first he saw this woman, she looked so fine Delilah she climbed up on Samson's knee Said tell me where your strength lies, if you please Then she spoke so kind, she talked so fair That Samson said, Delilah, you cut off my hair You can shave my head, cleanse my hand My strength comes as natural as any other man If I had my way If I had my way If I had my way I would tear this whole building down You read about Samson, all from his birth He was the strongest man ever had lived on earth One day while Samson was walking along Looked down on the ground, he saw an old jaw bone Then he stretched out his arm and his chains broke like threads And when he got to move, ten thousand were dead If I had my way If I had my way If I had my way I would tear this whole building down Now Samson and the lion, they got in attack And Samson, he walked up on the lion's back You read about this lion, he k**ed a man with his paw Samson got hands up round the lion's jaw He ripped that beast, k**ed it dead And the bees made honey in the lion's head If I had my way If I had my way If I had my way I would tear this whole building down
