Drowning Man Lyrics

Artist: Arlo Guthrie
Album: Outlasting the Blues

words and music by Arlo Guthrie

I remember when I met you
Underneath the evening sky
Now it seems I could forget you
Rescue me, I'm bound to die

All the promises we made there
With no words to understand
And though I've tried I've come up empty
Heart of stone, drowning man

CHORUS:
I'm going down for the third time
And I need a helping hand
The rooster crows and I'm sinking
Heart of stone, drowning man

Where are you, my dear companion
How much longer must you be
I'm all alone out on the ocean
When will you come and rescue me

It's too late for new beginnings
In this world I've left behind
There is nothing left worth keeping
Not a thing to change my mind

CHORUS

How far down the road to glory
Must we go without a sign
Caught out on these stormy waters
How can you treat me so unkind

Did you know from the beginning
That I'd dig this lousy hole
Oh, don't leave me here abandoned
In this dark night of the soul

CHORUS
