Now that I’m goin' down-down girl
You know I'll keep it up the rest of the night
I'm goin' down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down-down girl
And you will never again reach that height
‘Cause every single mountain crest
Seems to lead straight 'way up to the next,
When’s he gonna round the winding road’s bend
Will this weary traveler ever rest?
What happened to the masses to everyone else,
Have the other pilgrims lost their way?
No one else was able to keep on up
He’s the best there is and’s gonna stay
While on his journey the split mountain shakes
God's hand has made a quake in no others' wake.
The rolling land quivers with tension's release
So the traveler's grip holds tight onto the sides of the crease
He keeps on singing and breathing and letting her know
That he'll make it on up and eventually show
The long-lost girl who never knew
That she deserved more than was promised to
