I said yes
I said yes, I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down, down, down, down
I'm goin down, I'm goin' down
I'm goin down, down, down, down, down

My woman's gone
Says she don't wanna be no mo'
My woman gone
Says she don't wanna be no mo'
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down
Yes, since she's been gone

I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down, down, down, down
I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down, down, down, down, down
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down, down, down, down, down

My woman done left me
And I just can't do no good
My woman done left me
And I just can't do no good
Ever since she been gone
I've been goin' down, down, down, down, down
Yeah!

(Instrumental, harmonica)

Yeah!
I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down, down, down, down
I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down, down, down, down
I got my big feet in your window
And my head down on the ground

What's the matter?
What's the matter with me?
I wonder what's the matter
What's the matter with me?

I've been goin; down
Ever since the woman had gone
I've been goin' down
Ever since the woman's been gone
I've been goin' down, down, down
I've been goin, down, down, down, down, down

I've been goin, down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down

(Instrumental, harmonica & short guitar)

I've got my big feet in your window
And my head down on the ground
I've got my big feet in your window
And got my head down on the ground
I'm goin' down, I'm goin' down
I'm goin' down, down, down, down, down

I'm goin' down, down, down, down, down


(Instrumental & organ & piano)

John Lee Spoken (calls out to Van)

Hey! Van!
We are cookin'

Van sings: Goin' down

John Lee: Give Van a little please, Van Morrison

Van sings: Goin' down
I'm goin'
Down, down, down, down, down

John Lee: You're goin' down

John Lee: You're goin' down, down, down

Van: We're goin'

John Lee: Down, down, down

Van: We're comin', six o'clock in the mornin'
Six o'clock in the mornin'
That I was goin' down
I'm goin' down
Down, down
Down, down
Down, down

(Instrumental)

Van: I'm goin' down
I got my feet on the window
Head right on the ground
Got my head on the ground
Got my head.
