Townes Van Zandt – Ain't Leavin' Your Love lyrics

By townes van zandt

Mister gator he's a-glidin' down the bayou
Mister buzzard he's a-slidin' through the air
Mister turtle be a-hittin' the highway
I ain't goin' nowhere

I ain't leavin you love, babe
I ain't leavin you love, babe
Not for heaven above, babe
I ain't leavin you love, babe

The poor man got him an airplane
Tryin to cruise across the traffic jam
The rich man got him a chevrolet
I'm stayin' right where I am

Now hannibal he climbed the mountains
Cleopatra danced down the nile
Lucky lindy made it all the way to gay paris
I'm stayin right here awhile
