"Walkin' on Down the Road" as written by Jack Irons, Hillel Slovak, Anthony Kiedis and Michael Peter Balzary....
Well I'm walking on down the road
But it can't be heaven
'cause the streets aren't gold
And everybody knows what bobby d was told
I'm walkin' on down the road
Groovin' a tune straight out of the womb
Trust is a must to be a true blue dude
That's a matter of fact don't be confused

Everybody knows true friends are few
Everybody come in, everybody sing, sing my song
Everybody knows, everybody things, that I've done wrong
Everybody come in, everybody sing, sing my song

Well I'm walking on down the road
But it can't be heaven
'cause the streets aren't gold
And everybody knows what bobby d was told
I'm walkin' on down the road
A like a momma bear hugs her baby bear cubs
A dude he can't lose when he lives on love

Like the bark on a tree
Like the skin on my knees
I'm standin' by my blood

Everybody come in, everybody sing, sing my song
Everybody knows, everybody things, that I've done wrong
Everybody come in, everybody sing, sing my song

Well I'm walking on down the road
But it can't be heaven
'cause the streets aren't gold
And everybody knows what bobby d was told
I'm walkin' on down the road

    General Commenti love the feel of this song, it's so different from the other songs on Uplift Mofo Party Plan.
    Seems like the chili peppers' take on country mixed with funk.
