Downright Down Lyrics

Well I got too sick to tell you goodbye
When I woke up you were in Connecticut
I was south of a sigh
Someone tell me what went wrong
I was doing so well
The last thing that I recall
A late drunken singalong
Then it all went to hell

Down on my luck
Down in the dumps
I'm downright down tonight

My body was aching, my vision was blurred
I opened my mouth to speak, but I couldn't say a word
The panic was rising, heartbeat doubled its time
Throwing both my arms around, gesticulating up and down
Like a broke, jonesin' mime

Down on my luck
Down in the dumps
I'm downright down tonight

And pulling the morphine drip out of my arm
I cried is this some sick kind of joke
Goin' on six months of fasting, I ain't even had me
So much as just one single smoke
Ah but how are they to know

So I lay back down beneath an old patchwork quilt
Given by her sisters of perpetual guilt
And the bell in the church tower hasn't sounded in years
Still I'm woken from my troubled dreams
With a dull and unending ring in my ears

Down on my luck
Down on the dumps
I'm downright down tonight

The only one I see now is this priest make his rounds
And he crosses himself over me
And while he prays for peace, I pray that I might speak
So that I could ask how to believe
Ah, but how is he to know?

So I'm learning to talk all over again
You were always saying I should go back to school
Well look, here I am
