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

--------------------
The title was inspired by Richard Farina's 1966 novel Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me - Farina died in a motorcycle accident two days after it was published. The lyrical content was driven by the band's sense that they were constantly being harassed by authorities, notably Jim Morrison's various arrests.

Farina, who was good friends with Bob Dylan, was also a singer. He married Joan Baez' younger sister Mimi in 1963 and performed with her as Richard & Mimi Farina.
Jim Morrison died shortly after this album was released. He did some of his best work on it, but still struggled with alcoholism and drug abuse. He went to Paris to relax, and died there under mysterious circumstances.
The phrase "been down so long, and it looks like up to me" was originally used by bluesman Furry Lewis in 1928.
