"Livin' It Down" as written by Benmont M. Tench, Gary Tolbert Nicholson and Delbert Ross Mc Clinton....
My ship came in and she sunk it
I was the toast of the town and she drunk it
I had a run of good luck and she ran it right into the ground
And now she's puttin' on a show and I get to play the clown

I had the wind in my sails and she took it
I had the world by the tail and she shook it
I reached out for a life line and she threw me a noose
I got the short end of the chicken and she got the golden goose

[Chorus: ]

She's living it up,and I'm tryin' to live it down
Just when I got it all together , it's all about to come unwound
Everybody laughin' behind my back, baby sure is a sad old sound
She's out there livin it up and I'm trying to live it down

I had my ducks in a row and she shot 'em
I had my eggs in a basket she dropped 'em
I threw her outta the house but she was back like a boomarang
Sometimes you get the honey, sometime all you get is the stang

[Chorus: ]

She's living it up, and I'm tryin' to live it down
Just when I got it all together , it's all about to come unwound
Everybody laughin' behind my back, baby sure is a sad old sound
She's out there livin it up and I'm trying to live it down

She's a livin it up and I may never live it down
