(LeAnn White/Tony Joe White)

One foot on the mountain, the other one in the stream
All kinds of trouble and I'm caught in between
I can't change my way of doin'; it's gonna lay like it falls
If I can't go down rockin', I ain't gonna go down at all.

She was a child of acquired money, had that silver spoon
I knew she had a little wild streak and needed breathing room
If I can't be your sugar daddy, I won't be your Neanderthal
If I can't go down rockin', I ain't gonna go down at all.

Chorus:
Spent a little time in the congregation,
that's how I was raised
Spent a little time in trouble, but I do have my ways
Don't be your Neanderthal.

Tonight I had good intentions of crawling into bed
Resting my body and clearing my head
But, just about midnight, I got that telephone call
If I can't go down rockin', I ain't gonna go down at all.

Chorus:
Spent a little time in the congregation,
That's how I was raised
Spent a little time in trouble, but I do have my ways
If I can't go down rockin', I ain't gonna go down at all.

If I can't go down rockin', I ain't gonna go down at all...
This song is from the album "Goin' Down Rockin': The Last Recordings", "Collectors Edition" and "Never Say Die (Live)".
