The sun sinks low in the western lands
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
And a woman's heart is like the wind
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down

And he could not put her from his mind
And love is strong and it will not die
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down

Protect me now from what I am
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
For I'm in too deep and I cannot swim
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down

And he cursed his hands and he cursed his tongue
For what he'd said, for what he'd done
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down

Love, love, love's obsession
What keeps a man alive
By some strange possession
I stay safe inside
My heart's on probation
It was my first time
This world, world of wonders
Stick your head outside

Now the ass can speak but he don't say much
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
His words of wisdom, come but once
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down

So build your house on solid ground
And stay indoors when the rain comes down
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
Go down, daddy go-down, daddy oh daddy go-down
