"Down, Down, Down" as written by and Neil Young....
Come to see her in the river
She'll be there to wave to you.
In the hope that you'll forgive her,
She will join you there...

Find out that now was
the answer to answers,
that you gave later.
She did the things that
we both did before now,
but who forgave her.

Now you see how down you've fallen,
Now you hear your conscious call.
Thank yourself alone for stallin',
I'm not there to call...

Call me a fool cause
I need her, and see her,
but now you're down.
Something inside you
will tell you I'm wise to
what you're spreadin' round.

If I could stand to see her cryin',
I would tell her not to care.
When she learns of all your lyin',
Would she join you there...

Find out that now was
the answer to answers,
that you gave later.

    General CommentI don't know when the title was changed, but on Deja Vu the song was listed as "Whisky Boot Hill, Down down down, and Country Girl. At some point it became just "Country Girl".

    I have never heard or read some of the lyrics as posted here/ Is there a source available for this version?

    You might also find it interesting that this song, and "Broken Arrow", share some lyrics and music which were taped during the writing of the songs. Vocal and piano, I my memory is correct. I found it VERY interesting.
