Slow Down Lyrics

by Kris Kristofferson

I said, slow down
(Slow down and live my friend)
Take time
(Take time to understand)
The things
(The things you hope to win)
Before
(Before your journey's end)

Slow down
(Slow down and try to do)
The things
(The things that's right for you)
You know
(You know)
The soul
(The soul)
You save could be your own

Albert Abernathy never spent a foolish dime
Rising at the crack of dawn and working overtime
Though he never told me how much happiness he found
Yesterday we laid him in the finest grave in town

I said, slow down
(Slow down and live my friend)
Take time
(Take time to understand)
The things
(The things you hope to win)
Before
(Before your journeys end)

Slow down
(Slow down and try to do)
The things
(The things that's right for you)
You know
(You know)
The soul
(The soul)
You save could be your own

Little Sally Tremble is a Music City Queen
You can see her picture now on every magazine
Sally's come a long way from the life she left behind
She's had six gold records and been married seven times

I said, slow down
(Slow down and live my friend)
Take time
(Take time to understand)
The things
(The things you hope to win)
Before
(Before your journeys end)

Slow down
(Slow down and try to do)
The things
(The things that's right for you)
You know
(You know)
The soul
(The soul)
You save could be your own

Slow down and live my friend
Take time
(Take time to understand)
The things
(The things you hope to win)
Before
(Before your journeys end)

Slow down
(Slow down and try to do)
The things
(The things that's right for you)
You know
