Townes Van Zandt - Ain't Leavin Your Love ( Live VERSION)

Mister Gator he's a-glidin' down the bayou
Mister Buzzard he's a-slidin' through the air
Mister Turtle be a-hittin' the highway
I ain't goin' nowhere

I ain't leavin' your love, babe
I ain't leavin' your love, babe
Not for heaven above, babe
I ain't leavin' your love, babe

The poor man got him an airplane
Tryin' to cruise across the traffic jam
the rich man got him a Chevrolet
I'm stayin' right where I am

Now Hannibal he climbed the mountains
Cleopatra danced down the Nile
Lucky Lindy made it all the way to gay Paris
I'm stayin' right here awhile
