Performed by The Uke Box

The Uke Box - Firefly Crown by The Uke Box

Bare feet walkin’ ‘cross the muddy ground
Feed-sack dress, firefly crown
Pack my bag and pawn my ring
Ride that rail to New Orleans

I’m goin’ down, goin’ down
Further than I’ve ever been
Change my name and choose my friends
I’m goin’ down, goin’ down
Down that lamp lit road
LuLu’s waitin’ so I’ve been told

Velvet shoes 'pon a polished floor
Madame opens the parlour door
Hungry hands and thirsty souls
Bloody sheet and coin of gold

I’m goin’ down, goin’ down
Further than I’ve ever been
Faceless favors for nameless men
I’m goin’ down, goin’ down
If my price you pay
Count my coins and sleep all day

Rushin’ boots through the pourin’ rain
Whistle blowin’, A boardin’ train
Money made by selling me
Money used to set me free

I’m goin’ down, goin’ down
Further than I’ve ever been
Small towns passin’ the window pane
I’m goin’ down, goin’ down
On my knees to pray
Black bird sings then she flies away

Bare feet walkin’ 'cross the muddy ground
Feed-sack dress, firefly crown
