The Stone Coyotes

Goin' Down for the Third Time

B. Keith and D. Tibbles


In this old hotel

I can hear a grown man cry

“I have nothin’ left to live for

And sweet Marie’s the reason why”


Somebody help me

Jesus, please throw me a line

I’m drownin’ in a sea of tears

Goin’ down for the third time


He said, “There’s a blue moon at my window

All night I walk the floor

Callin’ Baby please come back

Is that you knockin’ at my door?”


I can hear him through the wall

Callin’ out for sweet Marie

He said, “ My only two companions

Are pain and misery”


Have mercy

Have mercy

Have mercy
