Goin’ Down Slow — Howlin’ Wolf

Charles Cowling

(spoken:)
Man…
You know I’ve been enjoyin’ things that kings and queens will never have!
In fact kings and queens can never get ‘m.
And they don’t even know about it!
And good times? Mmmmmmmmm-mmh!!

(sung:)
I have had my fun, if I never get well no more (x 2)
Oh my health is fadin’ on me, oh yes I’m goin’ down slow

(spoken:)
Now looka here…
I did not say I was a millionaire…
But I said I have spent more money than a millionaire!
Cause if I had kept all my money that I’d already spent,
I would’ve been a millionaire a looong time ago…
And women? Great Googlie-Mooglie!!

(sung:)
Please write my mother, tell her the shape I’m in (x 2)
Tell her to pray for me, forgive me for my sin

    Chester Burnett – saw him in the early sixties with Hubert Sumlin
    If you like this (Original Blues song – Going Down South.) then you must listen to Smokestack Lightnin’ and Little Red Rooster which most people think is by The Rolling Stones.

    I love that Great Googlie-Mooglie too. Love it to bits and pieces. What a fab song. What a great guy. Sheer joy!
