Mavis Staples - Anytime Lyrics

Give me a one way ticket
Somewhere I've never been
I'm rock, paper, scissors
And I'm bound to win

You can't shake me
And there ain't no use
In trying, no
Anywhere, anyway

I'm a fighter, I'm a lover
There is no other way
Could be one or the other
On any given day

You can't fool me
And I there ain't no need
In you trying, no
Anyway, anywhere
Anyway, anywhere

You got me
Halfway gone
Halfway there
You got me halfway down
Halfway up in the air
Oh it reminds me
Of a story
Tell ya later if you don't mind, oh
Anywhere, anyway
Anywhere, anyway
Anywhere, anyway
Anywhere, anyway
