The Finish the Lyric Game

The rules are simple: finish the line or write in the next one, then post the beginning of another line from another song, e.g.:

[Post #1]
There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold…

[Post #2]
…and she’s buying a stairway to heaven.

Yeah you know when I drink alone…

[Post #3]
…I prefer to be by myself.

(new song lyric here)…

and so on.

Just try not to make it too obscure, and post enough of the starting lyrics so as to not be impossibly ambiguous.

I’ll start it off with an easy one:

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin’ about half past dead…

I just need some place where I can lay my head

and daisy chains and laughs

Got to keep the loonies on the path.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery…

…None but ourselves can free our mind

I bet your mama was a tent show queen…

“…and all her boyfriends were sweet sixteen.”

"I don’t want to drink my whiskey like you do…"

I don’t need to spend my money but still do.

I’ve got one foot on the platform, the other foot on the train…

Nice to see someone get a Slade reference!

“I’m gooooooing back to New Orleans… to wear that ball and chain.”

“But it’s not my conscience that hates to be untrue.”***

…I asked of my reflection “Tell me what there is to do?”

I got a Gibson without a case…

But I can’t get that even tanned look on my face.

Well, I’m not the world’s most masculine man…

… but I know what I am, and I’m glad I’m a man,
And so is Lola.

"Get out in the field, put the mule in the stable."

Ma she’s a cookin’, put the eats on the table

You will never understand it 'cause it happens too fast…

And it feels so good it’s like walking on glass

Twelve hours out of mackinaw city, stopped in a bar to have a brew

Met a girl and we had a few drinks and I told her what I’d decided to do

I was gone for fourteen days, I coulda been gone for more

Held up in an intensive care ward
Lyin’ on the floor

momma used to whoop me
but I’d go see him again
