Lyrics

Going Down to the Lazy River

Written By: Robert Adelman

Going Down to the Lazy River

Intro

Going down to the Lazy River, hide myself away
Going down to the Lazy River, moving on today
Cause I, never done, just what they say
Got to run, run, run
Run away

Verse I

I’m gonna take my time, I’m gonna drink some wine
I’m gonna burn both ends today
I’m gonna have some fun, no I ain’t gonna run,
I’m gonna make them see my way

Verse II

You know the sheriff’s line, he said the gun was mine
But I swear that just ain’t true
But even just the same, he’s callin out my name
He says the devil gets his due

Pre Chorus

But I, never been that way
That girl, when she knelt down to pray
Don’t say I, took her life that day
Because

Chorus

Goin down to the Lazy River
Hide myself away
Goin down to the Lazy River
Movin on today

Cause I never done, just what they say,
Got to run, run, run,
Run away

Verse III

You know my momma said, there’s something in my head
She never had no faith in me
And in my daddy’s eyes, you know they couldn’t lie
Cause it was all too plain to see

But I know the truth and yeah I got the proof
I’m gonna make them see my way
Today

Pre Chorus II

Cause I, never been that way
That girl, when she knelt down to pray
Don’t say I, took her life that day
Because

Chorus II

Bridge

I got to go
Got to go
Got to go
To go
To go
To go

Verse IV

I see it ain’t no use, because they got the noose
They’re gonna say that I’m to blame
So I’ll be on my way but I’ll be back someday
I’m gonna make them clear my name

Final Pre Chorus

Cause I, never been that way
That girl, when she knelt down to pray
Don’t say I, took her life that day
Because

Chorus

Goin down to the Lazy River
Hide myself away
Goin down to the Lazy River
Movin on today

Cause I never done, just what they say,
Got to run, run, run,

Final Chorus
