Marcus King Band, The - Side Door Lyrics




Been too long since I last saw you baby
Standing high above your sky
Sunlight shining through your golden hair
And the moonlight was rising in your eyes

Never claim I know what's bothering you
Ain't a damn thing I could say or do
Darlin', leave your side door open
And I'll be there as the sunset turns to night

Leave your side door open for me
I may leave
Lord, I may leave
Leave your side door open, baby
I may leave
Lord, I may leave

Holding on to you and that feeling
May I let go, let go of my sorrow
I'll be gone by the time you wake up baby
And you're side man will be swinging coming round

Found my heart back in Virginia
And it's with me almost every night
I'll be gone by the time you read my letter
But I'll hold your love with me as I ride oh

Leave your side door open for me
I may leave
Lord, I may leave
Leave your side door open baby
I may leave
Lord, I may leave

Leave your side door open
I may leave
Lord, I may leave
Leave your side door open baby
I may leave
I may leave

  13. Jason Cloud

    Saw these guys last weekend in Memphis TN had the VIP package with sound check and meet and greet!! All of them seem to be very humble and interacted with us during sound check!! Seemed very genuine during meet and greet didn’t have the “lets just get this over with” vibe took time for conversation!! And the show was utterly amazing!! Played for 2 1/2 hours left their all on the stage!!

  14. PacificBlu

    I heard this song once, put it on the loop and have now listened to it repeatedly for over 30 times...so far 🔥👌🔥

  15. KEVEN OCHS

    Such a good sound, amazing.

  16. So true

    Just discovered this amazing talent!! Thank you Youtube and Thank you Marcus King. You're my new favorite artist. :)

  17. Christina Sagos

    Been too long since I last saw you baby
    Standing high above your sky
    Sunlight shining through your golden hair
    And the moonlight was rising in your eyes

    Never claim I know what's bothering you
    Ain't a damn thing I could say or do
    Darlin', leave your side door open
    And I'll be there as the sunset turns to night

    Leave your side door open for me
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave
    Leave your side door open, baby
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave

    Holding on to you and that feeling
    May I let go, let go of my sorrow
    I'll be gone by the time you wake up baby
    And you're side man will be swinging coming round

    Found my heart back in Virginia
    And it's with me almost every night
    I'll be gone by the time you read my letter

    Leave your side door open
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave
    Leave your side door open baby
    I may leave
    I may leave

  18. David Paynter

    I can't stop watching all of the Marcus King videos. Dude is incredible.

  19. Chris Walker

    This is just great! Found by accident on Youtube, but man I am pleased I did! Just ordered two albums! Great voice and guitar playing.

  20. Amber Kelly

    Currently have this on repeat! MKB killed it.

  21. Swaggercat

    It really sucks that the mic stand is blocking the shot of when Marcus solos.

  22. Jody Essers

    just put some sunglasses on

  23. Josue Reyes Guzman

    Amazinggggg !!!!

  24. Cam Lendrim

    Love the Marcus King Band. Bet they could knock the Hell out of Whipping Post !

  25. BW Wells

    Real deal! From the sound quality to video to musicianship of MKB! Stellar performance all the way around.

  26. John Pagliaro

    I’m blown away 💥💥💥💥💥

  27. DreamBeliever365

    Nice back beat. Sweet bass. Tight and clean

  28. Louis P

    Has a Joe Cocker vibe. Really enjoyed this.

  29. Trimille Michelle

    Saw them last night open for Stapleton! FABULOUS!!!!! Love!!

  30. Scottish Clansman

    100% Legit.

  31. Nancy Jackson

    If only I had a side door! Dang it❤️

  32. Cristian C

    Brother, don't'get me wrong, you play a mean guitar, but blues....just doesn't go with the white man. Clapton thinks he plays blues, but was never close to having BB King's feel. You see a kid like Christone Ingram and one should get it, you are born with the blues man, it's the truth and I hate it , cause I have been fudgeting with a 335 for a long time trying to get the tone, then along comes a 16 year old kid playing his heart out. I feel like I wanna sell all my guitars and just quit.

  33. Sandbox_Bullies

    Sent a email about us playing jam in the van???

  34. Tim Bird

    John mayer: Gravity?!

  35. Truus Muus

    THIS IS SENSATIONAL

  36. Ken Suon

    The Prince of Blues, already technically better than Jimi and Stevie, he is their spiritual son, with Scofield Warren Haynes Albert King etc.. !

  37. Chris Doherty

    Amazing as always. Anyone else hear some heavy undertones of Gravity by JM in this?

    Jason Cloud

    I’m a huge Mayer fan and would love to here them collaborate

  38. richard peter

    This is amazing really good

  39. saxonsteve

    MKB ARE ONE OF THE FINEST BANDS ON THE PLANET EARTH!!!!!

  40. saxonsteve

    FINALLY ! FINALLY! GOING TO SEE YOU GUYS LIVE ON LONG ISLAND IN AUGUST!!! CAN HARDLY WAIT!!!

  41. MARK SKORICH

    Been too long since I last saw you
    Standing high above that sky
    Sunlight shining through your golden hair
    And the moonlight was rising in your eyes

    Never claim to know what's bothering you
    'Cause there ain't a damn thing I could say or do
    Darlin', leave your side door open
    And I'll be there as your sunset turns to night

    Leave your side door open for me
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave
    Leave your side door open for me, baby
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave

    [?]

    Found my heart back in Virginia
    Left it in Georgia just the other night
    I'll be gone by the time you read my letter
    But I'll hold your love with me as I ride

    Leave your side door open for me
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave
    Leave your side door open for me
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave

    Leave your side door open for me
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave
    Leave your side door open for me, baby
    I may leave
    Lord, I may leave

    Leave your side door open for me
    I may leave

  42. Luke and Liz Young

    Better than anything mainstream by a longshot

  43. MrTendrils

    Ok. Everyone else can go to bed.

  44. Nate Hine

    Steve Campbell giving another lesson in perfect bass lines.. damm .!!

  45. Nate Hine

    Sounds is great !! We already know how great Markus and the boys are !! Thanks Jamin In the van

  46. T H E K I T P L U G

    Jam In The Van engineers always have the cleanest mix. Sounds better than their studio masters honestly.

    Bornstormin

    They know how to balance the instruments with each other. It's all in the ears.

  47. G. Kortina

    Bonamassa style

    Scottish Clansman

    With a better voice.

  48. STSGuitar16

    Marcus has this generation’s best guitar tone by far

  49. O Sacul

    Real Music.

  50. Jeff Johnson

    You had me at 2 seconds into the song.

  51. Truus Muus

    This band blew my socks off, thank god the blues isn't dead

    Cody McHenry

    Truus Muus blues never die brother

  52. American girl

    July 27th in Canandaigua NY...Her I come...😎✌

  53. Dean Roddey

    That is seriously quality stuff there. They are getting stupidly tight, and the song writing is not undermining the awesome performances in any way.

  54. vanchick 2018

    Marcus King YOU ARE SO AWESOME TO LISTEN TO... LOVE YOUR GUITAR PLAYING, LOVE YOUR VOCALS... YOU ARE THE FULL MEAL DEAL FOR SURE!

  55. Brutalsville

    I hear a lot of Terry Reid here

  56. Six String Beard

    Effin Amazing! MKB 🤘🔥

  57. Overtime Freak

    Is there a chance to release a double cd from this Serie?

  58. Joseph Smith

    Saw him with the Tedeschi Trucks Band at Red Rocks. They should have opened for Marcus, not the other way around.

    Clinton Crites

    Your dick is hanging out bro....I love MKB but they don't quite have Tedeschi chops yet. Some day, but not yet. And for reference, I saw them open for Tedeschi as well. Marcus may eclipse a lot of the all time great axe men in the end though, give it time, he is only 23 haha.

  59. Dink Wonkleman

    I have lost inspiration as a musician and listening to a young man of this caliber do the things he does give me chills down my spine and has refilled an amount of the inspiration that I need to get out an play live again than you Jam in The Van and Markus King for doing what you do!!!! its much appreciated....

  60. vegastyphoon

    God bless ya Marcus. Sooooooo talented !!!

  61. Mike D

    Not sure what the 7 people who disliked this are smoking.... saw MKB 2 weeks ago in Melbourne at a sold out gig in front of 500 people. An experience none of us will ever forget. Unbelievable!!!!

  62. James Smith

    Don't get no better than that when it comes to the blues ....great musicians and great voice.......I'm listening through head phones

  63. Tonetwisters

    Nice stuff. Nice 345 ...

  71. Brett King

    The soul these kats are spreading is the real deal people.....take notice of a legendary band in the making !

  72. DHGroove

    Man, the recording quality of this vs the 2017 sessions with him is night and day. Sounds amazing.

    blustng07

    DHGroove Was just thinking that. I came from there thinking, I knew I had heard another version before...

  73. Grey Hillin

    Do the bands use the amps y'all have in the van?

    David Dobson

    Id like to know as well

  74. blustng07

    I can’t find much info on their bassist, Stephen Campbell. I’d like to know what kind of P-bass he’s using or what his setup is because that’s a godly tone.

    dhix

    i believe hes from Ashville NC

    Ryan Parmater

    Moollon P with La Bella lo-tension flats. tone and pocket are sick, plus he can get busy with it too when they kick it up. hes one of my favorites on the scene but i cant find much either.. sent him a message on social media about his background but didnt hear back :(

    Brian Puls

    @Ryan Parmater Thanks for the info, man. I'm ordering a pair of those flats for sure. He's a really sick bassist. Let me know if you hear anything back.

    PacificBlu

    Same! It brings joy to my heart 👌❤👌

    Matt Mendelsohn

    It's sad when there are beautiful voices and musicians like this that don't go through auto-tune and 300 mixer's but its over shadowed by some idiots doing dances from Fortenite. This is real music ladies and gents in case you didn't know.
