Don't Let Me Go Down

Old Man Guilt's down in my kitchen
Every evening you can find him here
The whiskey keeps him at bay
All night and half the day
It certainly don't make him disappear

Old Man Regret just left a message
He's gonna be late but he'll be here by nine
Though I know I shouldn't ask
And I think I'm fading fast
And I'm hoping you can help me one more time

Don't let me go down
Don't let me go down
Don't let me go down, down, down
Don't let me go down to the bottom
Or I might drown

Evil Miss Temptation joins the party
She wraps her legs around me like a snake
I try not to sin
She asks me to come in
I don't know how much more a man like me can take

Mr. Bitterness waits at the corner
He comes out when I least expect him to
Now I don't mean to be rude
I have a change of attitude
And that's the reason that I'm calling you

Don't let me go down
Don't let me go down
Don't let me go down, down, down
Don't let me go down to the bottom
Or I might drown

I need a ray of sunshine
I need a ray of light
I need a lucky break
If I'm to make
It through tonight

Don't let me go down
Don't let me go down
Don't let me go down, down, down
Don't let me go down to the bottom
Or I might drown

Don't let me go down to the bottom
Or I might drown
Don't let me go down to the bottom
Or I might drown

Don't let me go down
