Way Downtown

Song Author Doc Watson Lyrics by: Doc Watson Performer: Doc Watson Submitted by: Anonymous

[F]Way downtown just [C]fooling around
[G7]They took me to the [C]jail
[F]Oh me and it's [C]oh my
[G7]No one to go my [C]bail

It [F]was late last night when [C]Willie came home
[G7]I heard him a-rapping on the [C]door
He's a [F]slipping and a sliding with [C]them new shoes on
[G7]Momma said Willie don't you rap no [C]more

[F]Way downtown just [C]fooling around
[G7]They took me to the [C]jail
[F]Oh me and it's [C]oh my
[G7]No one to go my [C]bail

I [F]wish I was over at my [C]sweet Sally's house
[G7]Sitting in that big armed [C]chair
[F]One arm around this [C]old guitar
[G7]And the other one around my [C]dear

[F]Way downtown just [C]fooling around
[G7]They took me to the [C]jail
[F]Oh me and it's [C]oh my
[G7]No one to go my [C]bail

[F]Now it´s one old shirt is [C]bout all that I got
[G7]And a dollar is all that I [C]crave
I [F]brought nothing with me into [C]this old world
[G7]Ain't gonna take nothing to my [C]grave

[F]Way downtown just [C]fooling around
[G7]They took me to the [C]jail
[F]Oh me and it's [C]oh my
[G7]No one to go my [C]bail


Way downtown just fooling around
They took me to the jail
Oh me and it's oh my
No one to go my bail

It was late last night when Willie came home
I heard him a-rapping on the door
He's a slipping and a sliding with them new shoes on
Momma said Willie don't you rap no more

Way downtown just fooling around
They took me to the jail
Oh me and it's oh my
No one to go my bail

I wish I was over at my sweet Sally's house
Sitting in that big armed chair
One arm around this old guitar
And the other one around my dear

Way downtown just fooling around
They took me to the jail
Oh me and it's oh my
No one to go my bail

Now it´s one old shirt is bout all that I got
And a dollar is all that I crave
I brought nothing with me into this old world
Ain't gonna take nothing to my grave

Way downtown just fooling around
They took me to the jail
Oh me and it's oh my
No one to go my bail
