"Down In The Hole" as written by and Mick/richards Jagger....
Will all your money
Buy you forgiveness
Keep you from sickness
Or keep you from cold?

Will all your money
Keep you from madness
Keep you from sadness
When you're down in the hole?

'Cause you'll be down in the gutter
You'll be bummin' for cigarettes
Bummin' for nylons
In the American zone

You'll be down in the hole
Yeah, down in the hole
No escape from trouble
Nowhere to go

Down in the gutter
Beggin' for cigarettes
Beggin' forgiveness
All that you know

Down in the hole
After diggin' the trenches
Looking for cover and findin' out there ain't nowhere
Nowhere to go, nowhere, nowhere, nowhere to go

None of your money
Will buy you forgiveness
None of your jewelry
None of your gold

Your black market cigarettes
Your American nightclubs
Ah, they've got nowhere left

Something for nothing
All of your friends gone
Something for nothing
That's all that you know

There's something down in the hole
Down, down, down in the hole
There's something down
Down, down, down in the hole

    General CommentA great blues tune for sure. Lyrics not particularly important in this song,just overall mood of sadness.

    General CommentAmerican zone... kind of makes me think of Germans after WWII. Begging forgiveness, nowhere to go.
