ALLEN TOUSSAINT lyrics - Goin' Down

ALLEN TOUSSAINT
"Goin' Down"
(Allen Toussaint)

Don't get in too deep, brother
Don't get in too heavy
Don't get so you can't move about
Whenever you get ready
Born free, John see
But he sees just a little too late
Losing his freedom and losing his soul
Now all he can do is just wait for the others
Going down slowly, slowly going down
Holy moses slowly going down

Don't you get in too deep, sister
Don't get in too heavy
Don't you fix it so you can't move about
Whenever you get ready
Born free, Mary see
But you see just a little too late
Had her history rectified
Now, all she can do is just wait for it to happen
Going down slowly, slowly going down
Holy moses slowly going down

Don't get in too deep, brother
Don't get in too heavy
Don't get so you can't move about
Whenever you get ready
Born free, John see
But he sees just a little too late
Losing his freedom and losing his soul
Now, all he can do is just wait for it to happen

Going down slowly, slowly going down
Holy moses slowly going down
Going down slowly, slowly going down
Holy moses slowly going down
Going down slowly, slowly going down
Holy moses slowly going down
Going down slowly, slowly going down
Holy moses slowly going down
