Dolly Parton – Down lyrics

Spent all my money on everyone else
Why I just kept handing it out right and left
They didn't appreciate none of my help
I have found
Had me a man
I was so much in love
But he just walked off after using me up
I cried like a baby
It hurt me so much and I'm down
Yeah, I'm sure down


I know that I'm down but I'm gonna get up
I just need some time
Just need a little streak of good luck
And you know that it's rough when your bitting the dust like I am
You try to do right but tell me where does that get you
People just use you and then they forget you
Well it wont take me long
To get my feet back on solid ground
But now I'm down

When I get my life back in order again
Well I'll still be willing to help out my friends
And if you need some body or wished it had been, look around
Ill be spending my money on everyone else
Well I'll just be handing it out right and left
Ill find a new love I wont live by myself
I'm just down, now, yeah I'm down

Repeat chorus

I know that I'm down
But I'm bound to get up
