C'mon Down
   

 

C’mon down to my street 

Down by the street light
C’mon down to my street

We gonna have us a sweet time tonight 

If’n you can walk the line
Gonna ‘luminate the dark 

But it sure as hell ain’t gonna be no walk in the park 

 

C’mon down to my house

Over by the wide, white porch 

C’mon down to my house

We gonna sing us a torch song or two
And maybe get down with the blues 

Gonna take some nerve
To stand in there and face that sweepin curve 

 

CHORUS 1           

If you’re worryin’ about being late                 
Hop a train; the first one that arrives 
If’n you don’t know how to read the mile sign 
Hang a “lefty” and see if things just don’t turn out right 

 

C’mon down to my room

Over by the Great Hope chest 

C’mon inside in my room

You can be better than the rest 

If’n you can pass the test
Gotta pull back on the lid 

To see what we done hid there, just for you 

 

REPEAT CHORUS 1 

 

INSTRUMENTAL 

 

CHORUS 2           
If you’re worryin’ about being great
Collaborate with those that make you smile
If’n you don’t know how to read between the Times 
You got all the time you need--

Right up until the very day you die  

 

Walk you off of my street

Now that the dawn is breakin’ 

Walk you off of my street

Don’t you be forsakin’ the past
Got to find a way to make this last
Now don’t look so surprised 

You’ve seen one helluva lot for just one night
