"Blood Red And Goin' Down" lyrics - TANYA TUCKER

"Blood Red And Goin' Down"

That Georgia Sun was blood red and goin' down.
That Georgie Sun was blood red and goin' down.

Daddy said "now come on girl we're headed down the road to Augusta"
And faintly through his clenched teeth he called momma's name
And then he cussed her
He said "girl you're young
But some dude has come along and stole your mother
But you can't steal no will and mind
'Cause momma's always lookin' for a lover"


With dusty tear drops on his face
My daddy cried in big steps he was takin'
Halfway running to keep up
My shorter legs, were so tired and shakin'
"Where did I go wrong girl
And why would she leave us both this way?"
At times like these, a child of ten never knows exactly what to say


We searched in every bar room and honky tonk as well
And finally daddy found them
And Lord, you know the rest is hard to tell
He sent me out to wait
But scared, I looked back through the door
And daddy left them both soaking up the sawdust on the floor.

[Chorus 2x]
