Got one foot in front of the other
Got the wind at my back
Got the bluebird of happiness on my shoulder
Along with everything that I could pack
Won't get me down, won't get me down
Dig a hole, put me in the ground, won't get me down
This old guitar's done some livin', and it's made a lot for me
It's seen its share of bar fights
And it's sat in the corner and cried for me
Won't get it down, won't get it down
If it never made another sound
Won't get it down
She wears my ring on her finger
We swore we'd always be true
There's no doubt our love will linger
Long after this old world is through
Won't get us down, won't get us down
Slander us all over town
Won't get us down
There's a man they call Jesus
And He did a lot for me
Everything we do, He sees us
Yeah, He walks through eternity
Won't get Him down, won't get Him down
He was crucified with a thorny crown
Won't get Him down
Won't get Him down, won't get Him down
Someday He'll be back around
Won't get Him down

    General CommentI can't believe nobody commented on this song. It's my favorite cross canadian ragweed song. Although I played this on the jukebox when I went out with one of my friends and my friend and the bartender that is also my friend started hillbilly dancing at me...LOL! But I love this song, It makes me happy! We all started clapping at the end like gospel and sang Amen at the end. I really like the gospel sound at the end.
