Go Down

Album: Let There Be Rock (1977)
  • Ruby, Ruby, where you been so long
    Done took to drinkin' whiskey
    Baby since you been gone
    Ain't no one I know do it as good as you

    Lickin' on that lickin' stick the way you do
    You got the lips to make a strong man weak
    And a heathen pray
    Tell you ain't just the way you speak

    You know it's just the way you go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down

    Mary, Mary, you're the one for me
    And the way you hum
    Sting like a bumble bee
    I'll be around to see you 'bout half past ten

    Ain't felt this good
    Since I don't know when
    You got the touch that I need so much
    In your finger tips

    I got the honey that ya love to taste
    On those lovely lips so go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down

    Baby rub it on
    Why' know it's sticky and sweet
    And it's been so long
    And no else got a touch like you

    I let you do the things to me
    I let no other woman do
    Feels good, feels good, oh yeah
    You do it like you should

    I loved you so much
    Make me so glad I'm a man
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down, go down
    Go down, go down, go down Writer/s: RONALD BELFORD SCOTT, ANGUS MCKINNON YOUNG, MALCOLM MITCHELL YOUNG

  • Michael J from Needles, CaI agree with Don. Simply the best of the Bon Scott era releases.Since I first listened to this album in the late 70's,I have never grown tired of hearing this one all the way through. From the first riffs of Go Down, to the last chords of Whole Lotta Rosie. Pure Brilliance......If you haven't listened to this in a while, do yourself a favor. Give it a whirl, bet it cracks a real big smile!!!
  • Don from San Antonio, TxThis is my fave and I think most overlooked AC/DC album! All the songs sound like they go together, and I don't mean that in a "AC/DC only knows one song" kinda way.
