Song Lyrics Right Place, Wrong Time by Dr John


Dr John

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd of said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I been in the right trip
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place
And I'm wondering what it's good for

I been the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
My head was in a place
But I'm having such a good time
I been running trying to get hung up in my mind
Got to give myself a little talking to this time

Just need a little brain salad surgery
Got to cure this insecurity
I been in the wrong place
But it must have been the right time
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong song
I been in the right vein
But it seems like the wrong arm
I been in the right world
But it seems wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

Slipping, dodging ,sneaking
Creeping hiding out down the street
See me life shaking with every who I meet
Refried confusion is making itself clear
Wonder which way do I go to get on out of here

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd have said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I'd a took the right road
But I must have took a wrong turn
Would have made the right move
But I made it at the wrong time
I been on the right road
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a good place
And I wonder what it's bad for

Dr John Artist Fact:

Dr. John was born and raised in New Orleans. Throughout the 1950s, he worked as a session musician in his home town. As a guitarist in his early career, he was known under the name Mac Rebennack. He then moved on to bass. After his hand was injured by a gunshot (he was protecting a bandmate during a confrontation), Dr. John would start playing piano. Professor Longhair has been cited as a major influence on Dr. John’s musical development. It was in the 1960s and 1970s that Dr. John would attain fame for his stage shows that featured voodoo-esque ceremonies, as well as his music – a potent mixture of psychedelic rock and rhythm and blues. He is perhaps best known for his song “Right Place, Wrong Time.”...Dr_John Bio
