"Goin' Down Slow" as written by and James B. Oden....
Girl I’ve had my fun
I know I ain't gonna get well no more
I’ve had my fun,
I know I ain't gonna never get well no more
I know my health is failing
I'm already goin down slow


Yes, and I’m going down slow

Please write my mama, and won't ya tell her the shape in
Oh please write my mother, tell her the shape I’m in
I want you tell her to pray for me, people
Well, to forgive for my sins

On that next train south, mother
You can look for my clothes on
On that next train south, mother
You can look for my clothes on
Yes, I had my fun, mother, this is all in prayers
Yes, I had my fun, people, mother, this is all in prayers
Yes, if you don’t see this old body, mother
You know I’m gone out of this world somewhere
