Won't break my heart
I won't hope to die if before Lexington I could slow down
They say a chariot's waiting when you get cut loose
The place start swinging when it's me on the noose

Mother do you think that your children cry?
'Cause they want to shake your chain?
I walked miles today one for every year of my life
In this stinking ****ing rain

Ooh, Just to slow down
So I could slow down
So I could slow down, yeah

Work for me luck just one last time
Spare me a chance, I've wasted mine
Shine on me light, don't you know I would
Reach for you there if only I could?

If I could slow down
If I could slow down
If I could slow down
Just slow down

I don't mind being stoned they say, Jesus was
And I like being alone and I can take living low
Forgive my being cruel if ever I was say a word for me too
When I'm under the gun it wouldn't break my heart

If I could slow down
Let the place start swinging
If there's a chariot waiting
Wouldn't break my heart

If I could slow down
Let the place start swinging
There's a chariot waiting
Wouldn't break my heart
