Eric Howl – I'm Goin' Down lyrics

You never work or do chores dear
You only tear things apart
So who are you to practice evil hoodoo
And lay around all day in my heart?

I gotta drop you in Joshua
I gotta make sure you're dead
That's the only way that, I can get some payback
And I can get you outta my head

I was born on the crux of the river
But I had nowhere to go
Then you attacked me, oh and you kidnapped me
And trapped me in the hole in your soul

I'm goin' down to Georgia
Gotta get out of this town
I can't be seen, by a girl so mean
Who's always puttin' me down

I love you darlin'
I really do
With your three-legged thoughts
And your wheels of Camelots
I'm a-ramblin' and a-reelin'
While my guitar does the waltz

I'm Goin' Down
I'm Goin' Down
I'm Goin' Down
I'm Goin' Down

I'm goin' down to Memphis
Gonna get me a millionaire
With smoke in her wreath, and gold in her teeth
And pearls in the curls of her hair

I love you darlin'
I really do
With your cinammon cheeks
And your harp you played for weeks
And you left me in a cold house
With a rooftop that leaks

I'm Goin' Down
I'm Goin' Down
I'm Goin' Down
I'm Goin' Down
