    An Innocent Man 1983 ©

    Christie Lee

    Let me tell you a story
    About a woman and a man
    Maybe you will find familiar
    Maybe you won't understand

    The man's name I don't remember
    He was always Joe to me
    But I can't forget the woman
    She was always Christie Lee

    He was working in a night club
    That's where he played the saxophone
    He used to fake stock arrangements
    He left the customers alone
    But one night before the last song
    About a quarter to three
    He saw her standing at the coat check

    And made his move on Christie Lee
    Christie Lee, Christie Lee
    Christie Lee, Christie Lee

    She was a nice piece of music
    She had a rhythm all her own
    He blew a solo like a blind man
    She really dug his saxophone
    She wanted more than just an encore
    And he could play in every key
    He left the stage and packed his alto
    And took it home with Christie Lee

    Oh I heard the man knew "the Bird" like the bible
    You know the man could blow an educated axe
    He couldn't see that Christie Lee was a woman
    Who didn't need another lover
    All she wanted was the sax
    It took a while for him to notice
    It took a while for him to see
    He was never in control here
    It was always Christie Lee

    Christie Lee, Christie Lee
    Christie Lee, Christie Lee

    Oh the man took a calculated gamble
    Yes the man had the power to perform
    But Christie Lee was more than he knew how to handle
    She didn't need him as a man
    All she wanted was the horn

    They say that Joe became a wino
    They say he always drinks alone
    They say he stumbles like a blind man
    They say he sold his saxophone

    Even the band must face the music
    That's what the moral is to me
    The only time you hit the high note
    Is when you play for Christie Lee

    Christie Lee, Christie Lee
    Christie Lee, Christie Lee
