Albert King – Down Don’t Bother Me lyrics

I’m going down. My nose is in the sand

I’m going down, down, baby. My nose is in the sand

A cloud of dust just came over me and I think I’m drowning on dry land.

You know, my father told me, son don’t rush to be a man

You know, my father told me, son don’t you rush to be a man

But I went ahead on, and now I think I’m drowning on dry land

You know my mother told me the story, about that li’l dog that couldn’t see

Too well

He was crossing a railroad track one day, when the train cut off a part of

His tail

He turned around but never looked up, just to peep over the rail

And she said he lost his whole head, trying to find a little piece of tail

That’s why I’m going down, my nose is in the sand

A could of dust just came over me

And now I think I’m drowning on dry land
