Down South - Tom Petty

headed back down south
gonna see my daddy's mistress
gonna buy back her forgivness
pay off every witness

One more time down south
sell the family headstones
drag a bag of dry bones
make good on my back loans

so if i come to your door
let me sleep on your floor
i'll give you all i have
and a little more

sleep late down south
look up my former mentors
live off yankee winters
be a landlord and a renter

create myself down south
impress all the women
pretend i'm samuel clemens
wear seers_cker and white linens

so if i come to your door
let me sleep on your floor
i'll give you all i have
and a little more

spanish moss down south
spirits cross the dead fields
mosquitoes hit the windshield
all document remain sealed

so if i come to your door
let me sleep on your floor
i'll give you all i have
and a little more

i'll give you all i have
and a little more
