Weighted Down Blues (Rachel Jackson, Lafayette LA)


"Weighted Down Blues"

Who's that face outside my window,
Thought that you was dead and gone.
Why's your face outside my window,
I thought that you was dead and gone.
Yeah I thought I'd left you back there,
                                    but I
Feel you hangin' on.


Seen so many folks slide under,
Seen 'em slip on further away.
Watched too many folks slide under
Yes I watched them all slip away.
By the time I saw them slippin',
                        they done
Too far in to save.

Well my steps sometimes grow heavy,
Pavement crumbles 'neath my feet.
Yes my steps grow oh so heavy,
Pavement crumbles 'neath my feet.
Its the weight of all them people
                        I still
Carry on with me.
