  • Blew my last twenty dollars on an Oiler's football game.
    I only lost by half a point, nothing ever goes my way.
    Reaganomics and plastic people makin' good luck hard to find.
    All this stuff that's goin' down, really got me down this time

    I've been down
    But not this far before
    Been kicked 'round
    But never out the door,
    I've been down
    But not like this before

    Well the preacher man's a talkin on the TV
    He's beggin for my only dime,
    I'd take another shot of whiskey
    If I thought it'd get him of my mind.

    I've been down
    But not this far before.
    Been kicked 'round
    But never out the door,
    I've been down
    But not like this before.

    [saxaphone plays]

    I had to find a way to get some money
    Never thought I'd go this far
    But It would mean living out on the streets
    So I robbed a liquor store with my daddy's army gun.
    Had to shoot a cop coming out the door,
    And now God I'm on the run

    I've been down
    But not this far before.
    Been kicked 'round
    But never out the door,
    I've been down
    But not like this before.

    Never this far before
    Knock, Knock, Knockin on the door.
