I've got something that my baby wants
And I've got something that my baby wants
And she's got something that I want too
Baby and I are through

I've been down to the bottom
With a bad, bad man
Down to the bottom babe
With a bad, bad man

Lay me down with your gentle hand

Well he said this darkness, it was untrue
And first he said this darkness, darlin',
It was untrue
And that there was no light to be found in you

But I know, darlin', that that's not true

And I had a dream so black
That I could not tell
Oh, honey, I had a dream so dark
That I could not tell

But I know that's just as well

And I don't know, babe,
Just where you've been
I don't know, darlin',
Just where you've been

But I've hung myself heavy here
Babe, I don't know where the hell I am

I thought that man, babe,
He might have something that I need
I thought that man, darlin',
He might have something that I need

But he had no anger
For you or for me
And, babe, I swear
That man never even knew I was here

Some of these friends of mine
How I miss them so
Good Lord, these sweet friends of mine
How I miss them so

But some of these, others beg
Well they're driving me around
On some cold, dark, and strange
And deathly roads

Take me down to your river
I want to see how it runs
Down to your river, darlin',
I want to know just how it runs

But if that man
Waits on the path
Then I know for good
That I'm done

And I got a feeling
That man, he's just begun

    General Commentwhy must it be about drugs?

    I can agree it's beautiful, though I don’t think it’s necessarily about drugs though. I think he is either talking about another man that some how got in-between his relationship with a girl, Or the other man he is talking about him self, The actions he will or doesn’t know to take ..with a girl involved. Though I suppose it could be anything for anyone, but I don’t think of drugs when I hear this song. More self sabotage.
