 "I have had my fun
If I never get well no more
I have had my fun
If I never get well no more
All of my health is failing
Lord, I'm goin' down slow
I'm goin' down slow
Please write my mother
And tell her the shape I'm in
Please write my mother
And tell her the shape I'm in
Tell her to pray for me
Forgive me for my sin
For all of my sin
On the next train south
Look for my clothes back home
On the next train south
Look for my clothes back home
'Cause all of my health is failing
Lord, I'm goin' down slow
I'm goin' down slow
All of my health is failing
Lord, I'm goin' down slow
I'm goin' down slow
Feel like I'm goin', like I'm goin' down slow
I feel like I'm goin', like I'm goin' down slow
I feel like I'm goin', like I'm goin' down slow
I feel like I'm goin', like I'm goin' down slow
I feel like I'm goin', like I'm goin' down slow..."
