Well I ain't never been to Folsom
But I've damn sure done my Time
Tryin' to please a Woman
Tryin' to walk the Line

When she washed her hands of our love
I went right straight down the Drain
Straight down the tubes with the booze and blues
Where the boozin' losers hang

Now I'm Lowdown and Lonesome, but I feel right at home
Cuz I done grown accustomed, to sinkin' like a stone
Since I hit rock bottom, I've been high as I can be
Ever since that woman, put that Lowdown and Lonesome on me

Here on this Whiskey river
Ain't no paddle, ain't no boat
And this Ninety-proof I'm clinging to
Been keepin' me afloat

Well they say I use to give a damn,
But that was long ago
Back before she took our love
And blew it full of holes

Left me Lowdown and Lonesome, but I feel right at home
Cuz I done grown accustomed, to sinkin' like a stone
Since I hit rock bottom, I've been high as I can be
Ever since that woman, put that Lowdown and Lonesome on me

Bartender keeps her picture on the wall here just in case
I ever can't remember how I wound up in this place

I'm Lowdown and Lonesome, but I feel right at home
Cuz I done grown accustomed, to sinkin' like a stone
Since I hit rock bottom, I've been high as I can be
Ever since that woman, put that Lowdown and Lonesome on me
She put that Lowdown and Lonesome on me.
