Going Down

This song is by Bo Diddley and appears on the album The London Bo Diddley Sessions (1973).

This song is a cover of "Goin' Down" by Allen Toussaint.
Don't get in too deep, brother
Don't get in too heavy
Don't get so you can't move about
Whenever you get ready
You're born free, John see
But he sees just a little too late
Losing his freedom and losing his soul
Now all he can do is wait for the others

Going down slowly
Slowly going down
Holy Moses
Slowly going down
Going down - slowly
Going down - slowly
Slowly - going down

Don't get in too deep, sister
Don't get in too heavy
Don't fix it so you can't move about
Whenever you get ready
Born free, Mary see
But you see just a little too late
Had her history rectified
Now, all she can do is wait for the others

Going down slowly
Slowly going down
Holy Moses
Slowly going down

Don't get in too deep, brother
Don't get in too heavy
Don't get so you can't move about
Whenever you get ready
You're born free, John see
But he sees just a little too late
Losing his freedom and losing his soul
Now all he can do is wait for the others

Going down slowly
Slowly going down
Holy Moses
Slowly going down

Going down slowly
Slowly going down
Holy Moses
Slowly going down

Going down slowly
Slowly going down
Holy Moses
Slowly going down
