Stevie Ray Vaughan - Crossfire Lyrics

Day by day, night after night
Blinded by the neon light
Hurry here, hustlin' there
No one's got the time to spare

Money's tight, nothin' free
Won't somebody come and rescue me?

I am stranded, caught in the crossfire
Stranded, caught in the crossfire

Tooth for tooth, eye for an eye
Sell your soul just to buy, buy, buy
Beggin' for a dollar, stealin' a dime
Come on, can't you see that I—

I am stranded, caught in the crossfire
I am stranded, caught in the crossfire

I need some kind of kindness
Some kind of sympathy. Oh, no
We're stranded, caught in the crossfire

Save the strong lose the weak
Never turning the other cheek
Trust nobody, don't be no fool
Whatever happened to the golden rule?

We got stranded, caught in the crossfire
We got stranded, caught in the crossfire
We got stranded, caught in the crossfire
Stranded, caught in the crossfire
Help me

    In Step was Stevie's last and imo best studio cd. I believe had he not gone when he did, the following music would have been phenomenal.

  5. Spider Monkey

    Miss of the BEST

  6. Mike Porten

    Greatest guitarists of all-time.

  7. Dave Ryan

    I Miss Stevie Ray!!! Damn Helicopter crash. To many air crashes took some of Our Greatest Music Artists.

  8. henrik hauris Sørensen

  9. Chase Me Down the street

    He was dancing back and forth on that black/white checkered floor when he wrote this. Killed in flight.

  10. Rusty Pendley

    Still jamming on SVR everyday. 1-3-2020

  11. Michael Anthony

    In 2020, here's MY list of guitar Legends, both living and those pushing up daisies (or who now have reeeally ashy knees and face, and well- everything) ... wait! I'm such a retard, they're all dead. Geez, I hear dead people... anywho:

    #4 Stevie Ray (and I love me some SRV people, just miho- go fetch yer own)
    #3 Prince (if in doubt, )
    #2 James Marshall Hendrix (don't ask why, just don't- lol)
    and drumroll please...
    #1 Eddie Hazel (if in doubt, who was just 21yrs old when he recorded this seminal piece, "Maggot Brain").

  12. David Phillips

    Just love stevie ray music

  13. Anita V. Vassar

    Not afraid of the idiots in the least. Regained my full strength.

  14. SWog

    Awesome...simple as that.

  15. Shannon Davies

    I don't think that bass line changes throughout the whole song

  16. Eve ill Anderson

    low key fuck lady 6a9a.. this man did everything right, he even got clean - you know man James Marshall Hendrix is right; especially in his AD career like, SRV is the best and it's not fare

  17. Victor DeLay

    I saw Stevie play Pier 84 on the Hudson NYC back in the mid 80s. It was sprinkling rain at the start of the Show, and was pouring rain by 30 minutes in, and they threw open the exit gates, and half the people left, but Stevie and I stuck it out. He played for well over an hour, rain pouring, that feather in his hat was flat, we were all soared, but he played on. Hands down the best, most memorable concert experience of my life. Oh yeah, I was out side listening at the start and ran in when the threw open the gates, Didn't pay a dime for the best rock-blues show I ever saw. That's Stevie to me. Now he's jamming in Rock & Roll heaven RIP my friend! =).

  18. Jukiiee

  41. Dakota Tathi

    Can someone tell me what this video is about

  42. Tridestilados

    663 lost their minds

  43. Jesse Nays

    the legend!

  44. Neil Fallon

    I just figured out the meaning of this song for myself, we are all caught in the crossfire off vices,sex, drugs and trying to impress others if we only stepped out of the crossfire we would be happy

  45. Cherokee Lair

    I got stranded... When he died.
    Sometimes I like to pretend he's just touring outer space!

  46. Mundo do Criatório

    Essa fase dele estava meia Eric Clapton

  47. Aversion

    647 People were never taught "If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all"

  48. Sweet Water

    Nobody had his talent. He's an Angel

  49. Colonel Solo

    He was finally achieving the success he deserved before he died. He was a true legend, only, most people realized that after he died.

  50. Dawson Fradin

    This song is gnarly man, but I think it maybe part of the few songs that sound best in the live versions

  51. Vedova Giocasta

    Ti rimette al mondo. Leggenda!

  52. Shablé

    Learn this solo if you play guitar, it may take years but you will be able to play most of his stuff if you do.

  53. Shablé

    This is the song that made me become a musician

  54. D Thompson

    “Save the strong, lose the weak.. never turning the other cheek. Trust nobody.. don’t be no fool. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE GOLDEN RULE?”

  55. Cheryl Zornes

    The man was just perfection musically. I will ALWAYS crank his music LOUD!!!!

  56. Elizabeth Parkins

    Listening to srv makes me miss my grandpa. He's how I got my love for srv. I know hes up there playing his guitar with him💕

  57. Gregory Hainsworth

    My son is named after Stevie Ray Vaughan.

  58. Josh Reitz

    I remember delivering newspapers while listening to this and I hoping I could see him live since he came regularly to the midwest only to hear by the time I could drive that he'd died in that copter crash. Should've been Clapton.

  59. D.L. Foster

    Kings get remembered but legends never die

  60. Big Timmy

    SRV is a Stratocaster master and a real Texas native. Thank you SRV for being who you were and that is a great blues man. RIP SRV forever and the Crossfire video is the most popular video I have ever seen.

  61. Betsy Milwee

    I love Stevie Ray so much!! I watch and listen to him everyday! I've seen every guitar player, and no one is better than him! Best guitar player that ever lived!

  62. Jim Duccilli

    What is the purpose of the gay brothers feeding popcorn to each other? how does that relate to the song? I must be missing something.

  63. Hans Random

    what amp is he posing with on the rooftop???

  64. Marie B

    This always reminds me of my uncle David. SRV was one of his favorite singers.

  65. Angel Meyers

    Stevie was a master of the guitar, but more importantly he was an instrument of the Master. Stevie was a humble man who, even at the height of his drug addiction was preaching for us to love each other and help others when they are down. I truly miss him...

  66. Ctrl V

    Look kids, a true genius at work turning hardship into joy, god bless his soul in eternity. And about his voice, its fucking badass!

  67. Sabrina PIttsley

    This guy is totally freaking amazing. Love his playing , his singing, and his unique clothing style. Total package.
