Goin' Down Slow
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics


Man
You know I done enjoyed things that kings and queens will never have
In fact, kings and queens can never get
And they don't even know about
And good times, mmm-mmm

I have had my fun
If I never get well no more
I have had my fun
If I never get well no more
Oh, my health is fading, oh
Oh, yes I'm going down slow

Now lookit here
I did not say I was a millionaire
But I said I have spent more money than a millionaire
'Cause if I had kept all the money then I had already spent
I would've been a millionaire a long time ago
And women, great googly-moogly!

Please write my mama
Tell her the shape I'm in
Please write my ol' mother
Tell her the shape I'm in
Tell her to pray for, oh
Forgive me for my sins

Bro I just discovered him 3 days ago and I’ve been non-stop He has changed my life (expert on female psychology from the male perspective) I wish he was alive but still thankful to have nuggets of gold left behind

Class and quality is not an experience for the masses. Only the few will appreciate this master piece.

Classic Howling Wolf Track I first heard in 1963 when I was 15. Still got the EP I bought with this one it. You gotta give credit to the fabulous guitar work of Hubert Sumlin which makes the song into a searing exposition of how to back a blues singer!
