Going Down Slow

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the compilation album Texas Sharecropper & Songster (1960).

I done had my fun if I don't get well no more
I done had my fun if I don't get well no more
My health is failin' me, and lord I'm goin' down slow

I want you to write my mother tell her the shape I'm in
I want you to write my mother tell her the shape I'm in
Tell her to pray for me, forgiveness for my sin

Mama don't send no doctor, (cause) he can't do no good
Mama don't send no doctor, (cause) he can't do no good
It's all my fault now mama, I didn't do the things I should

Next train south mama look for my clothes on
Next train south mama look for my clothes on
You don't see my body all you can do is moan

Mama Don't you worry, cause this is all in my prayer
Mama Don't you worry, cause this is all in my prayer
They say your son is dead out in this world somewhere
