Been Down So Long
The Doors Lyrics


Well, I've been down so goddamn long
That it looks like up to me
Well, I've been down so very damn long
That it looks like up to me
Yeah, why don't one of you people
A-come on and set me free?

I said, warden, warden, warden
Won't you break your lock and key?
I said, warden, warden, warden
Won't ya break your lock and key?
Yeah, come along here, mister
Come on and a-let the poor boy be

Baby, baby, baby
Won't you get down on your knees?
Baby, baby, baby
Won't you get down on your knees?
Come on, little darlin'
Come on, a-give your love to me, oh yeah

Well, I've been down so goddamn long
That it looks like up to me
Well, I've been down so very damn long
That it looks like up to me
Yeah, why don't one you people
Come on
Come on
Come on and set me free

This album proves The Doors would have eased into the 70's without a problem, right along with The Stones and Led Zeppelin. Unlike some 60's bands The Doors would have been a major driving force through-out the 70's and beyond...

Yes sorry lm no engliesh

Raymond Search

Absolutely! In fact, there was a huge resurgence of interest in the Doors in the late 70's and early 80's. Ray Manzarek then said Jim was way ahead of his time...and he still is!

Coco Chanel

I have never heard this version. His vocals are incredible, especially how he kicks it off.

William Baker

Legendary band way ahead of their time. Daily required listening!

Christine DeGaton

No they were at the right time at the right place, in all the hearts, souls, minds of us children of the 60's and early 70's. You cannot petition the lord with prayer,

johnnie soesbee

Jim was one of a kind, no one has replaced his energy.
He's definitely missed

Justice Bruno

There was nothing fake about him.. he just let it roll... nothing like getting your freak on and getting PAID!

Christine DeGaton

You cannot petition the lord with prayer, you cannot replace jim morrison

edna fuson

I love how he's lauging, then...lets get serious and just tears it up like a boss. The LIzard King is forever.
