Don’t Let Me Down

Words and Music
By
Juliet A. Wright


Addie don’t you think of lettin’ me down
I’m counting on you
To do your best and keep your feet on the ground
Oh
Don’t let me down

Times are tough
We’ve got to make a go
Get to spinning
Forget your dancin’
You’re always too slow
Oh,
Don’t let me down

Prechorus:
If you’re sick on Sunday
I’ll let you stay home in bed
Need to doff tomorrow
More than pray today
No money for the basket
But God understands
Oh,
Don’t let me down

Addie don’t you think of lettin’ me down
I’m counting on you
To do your best
And keep your feet on the ground
Oh
Don’t let me down

Ain’t no use in you going to school
Silly ideas in your head
Just make you a bigger fool
Oh
Don’t let me down

Prechorus 2:
I better not catch you hiding books
In your smock
It’s just wasted time off the clock

I don’t know how to read
So why should you? (So what’s your need?)
Oh,
Don’t let me down

Bridge:
Addie don’t you let me down
Break this fever and come around
Four of my babies never made it past ten
Not losing you
Like I did them

I used to have dreams
Darlin,
Like a fool
Make good money
And go back home
But Papa left us here
We’re on our own.
Oh,
Don’t let me down
