Blew my last twenty dollars on an Oiler's football game.
I only lost by half a point, nothing ever goes my way.
Reaganomics and plastic people makin' good luck hard to find.
All this stuff that's goin' down, really got me down this time

I've been down
But not this far before
Been kicked 'round
But never out the door,
I've been down
But not like this before

Well the preacher man's a talkin on the TV
He's beggin for my only dime,
I'd take another shot of whiskey
If I thought it'd get him of my mind.

I've been down
But not this far before.
Been kicked 'round
But never out the door,
I've been down
But not like this before.

[saxaphone plays]

I had to find a way to get some money
Never thought I'd go this far
But It would mean living out on the streets
So I robbed a liquor store with my daddy's army gun.
Had to shoot a cop coming out the door,
And now God I'm on the run

I've been down
But not this far before.
Been kicked 'round
But never out the door,
I've been down
But not like this before.

Never this far before
Knock, Knock, Knockin on the door.
