Written by Dewey Bunnell, ©1976
Found on Hideaway.

Somebody told me that the time was right
To keep on ridin' and to hang on tight
I heard the cry of a dog in the night
But nobody told me it would be all right

Don't let it get you down
But nobody make a sound
Don't let it get you down

We took a ride down a hill that night
The man was crazy but he wouldn't fight
With bullets in his back and money in a sack
We robbed a bank and we never looked back

Don't let it get you down
But nobody make a sound
Don't let it get you down

We took the bank, kept on runnin', but never too slow
The ride was fun and you know we went to Mexico
But the action that felt all right
Still haunts me in the night

We took the bank, kept on runnin', but never too slow
The ride was fun and you know we went to Mexico
But the action that felt all right
Still haunts me in the night, alright

Don't let it get you down
'Cause nobody made a sound
Don't let it get you down
They'll be lucky if we're ever found

Don't let it get you down (Don't let it get you down)
Don't let it get you down (Don't let it get you down)
Don't let it get you down (Don't let it get you down)
Don't let it get you down (Don't let it get you down) ...
