"Julie" as written by and Wood Randy Dubois/tim Dubois/newton....
Truly, I didn't mean to hurt you so.
Hands down I'm a loser my friends told you so
Because when I drink I get drunk and when I'm drunk
I get mad and when I'm mad I run away.

It's a curse a family curse I curse the day that I was born.
I've runaway too many time I guess my sheep is shorn.
You said to chose between the booze and you I picked the booze.
You spread your wings, lightened your load, got a running start and flew away.

Julie, don't take your love, don't take your love downtown.

It's not that I haven't tried to get my shit together.
I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box film at 11.
I tried to take some action I tried to find my handle.
I took 13 steps off a 12 step pier lucky I was wearing sandles.
There I go again rambling on.

I'm not begging you to come back I realize I've burned my bridges.
I apologize for my wicked ways and hope to be forgiven.
But you can choose to smear my name by hanging out and partying,
Drinking beers with smokin' blokes but baby let me warn you.

The folks downtown are cruel.
Especially to girls like you.
They'll chew you up and spit you out.
I'm not trying to scare you
Just stay out of downtown.

Julie don't take your love downtown.
