song title:Down
date: 2006-04-02
lyrics: 

verse 1:
Mama this old world has got me down.
Mama this old world just like my head keeps spinning 'round.
I've been drunk and I've been dreaming a sweet sound
But I'm just trying to get my feet back on the ground.

Chorus:
I've been up, and I've been down
Some hands I've won, some I've lost, and some I've found
I've been trying to get my feet back on the ground
and I've been down

verse 2:
Mama, this old rain's near got me drowned.
Mama, this old rain just like my tears keeps coming down.
I've been weeping, wailing, searching for that sound,
I'm just rying to get my feet back on the ground.

verse 3:
Mama, this old ship's done run aground.
Mama, this old train, just like my girl, is going southbound.
I've been shipping out, and steaming towards the sound
I'm just rying to get my feet back on the ground.
