Go Down Rockin' Lyrics

by Waylon Jennings

One foot on the mountain, the other one in the stream
All kinds of trouble and I'm caught in between
I can't change my way of doin', it's gonna lay like it falls
If I can't go down rockin', ain't gonna go down at all

She was a child of acquired money, had that silver spoon
I knew she had a little wild streak, needed breathing room
I can't be your sugar daddy, I won't be your Neanderthal
I can't go down rockin', ain't gonna go down at all

Spent a little time in the congregation, that's how I was raised
Spent a little time in trouble but I do have my ways

If I can't go down rockin', ain't gonna go down at all

Tonight I had good intentions of crawling into bed
Resting my body and clearing my head
Just about midnight, I got that telephone call
If I can't go down rockin', ain't gonna go down at all

Spent a little time in the congregation, that's how I was raised
Spent a little time in trouble but I do have my ways
I won't be your Neanderthal, ah
If I can't go down rockin', ain't gonna go down at all
