Down In The Bottom

life sucks when you receive a touch of it’s shaft …

Song Lyrics — Down in the Bottom …

Verse 1
I was giggin’ late one night
Met a man sittin’ with his wife
He offered me a gin — then two (oh, baby)
He told some jokes — talk’d ‘bout blues too, but …

Chorus
Here, down in the bottom, ‘got to pay my dues day and night
There’s no secrets, when in the bottom.
‘Cos here, in the bottom, you just keep gigin’ all night long
There’s no secrets, down in the bottom.

Verse 2
It didn’t take that long to seal a deal
The way we’re gonna work … had it’s appeal
A few more drinks, then he paid my bill
This is my time, sure .. I'm feel’n the thrill — but …

Bridge
Mama told me long before
Hey Sonny — watch out for that door.

Verse 3
I packed up my stuff, ready to go
Quit my gigs — no need for more shows
Said goodbye to all my old buddies
A car and my keyboard, that’s all I need — but …

Chorus — repeat

Verse 4
My favorite Q’s cd was playin’
Then a couple of Miles yet to go
I tried to call to my new friend’s phone
Please leave a message .. after the ring tone …

Bridge
Mama told me long before
Hey Sonny — watch out for that door.

Verse 5
At the studio my name’s not on that door
Asked a big black man to check all the same
He said — hey dude, what did you expect
You’ve been cut out of their plans — say what ..

Chorus — repeat
Chorus — repeat

Here, way down in the bottom, there’s no hope to make it right
There’s no secret, when in the bottom
Here, in the bottom, you just keep gigin’ day and night
There’s no secret, down here in the bottom.

been too long down here in the bottom ….
