I Won't Let You Down

Album: Clancy's Tavern (2011)
  • Pressed my lips on your sun-burnt skin
    On a road by the river bend
    Standing underneath the dead end sign
    We swam around underneath the moon
    And danced around a Bob Seger tune
    And finished up a bottle of home-made wine

    I never had to write a girl a song
    Had a woman stay this long
    And now you're moving in
    And I'm alright with that

    I ain't got a pot of gold
    Girl I ain't even got a rainbow
    But I've heard that love is where
    Treasure can be found
    Don't expect too much from me
    And I won't let you down

    Never been ashamed of the clothes I wear
    I've never been a nickel millionaire
    Never even bought myself a truck

    I spent most of my life in a smoky bar
    Playing country blues on box guitar
    And I've done alright
    You can call that luck

    Never had to write a girl a song
    Or had a woman stay this long
    And now you're moving in
    And I'm alright with that

    I ain't got a pot of gold
    Hell I ain't even got a rainbow
    But I've heard that love is where
    Treasure can be found
    Don't expect too much from me
    And I won't let you down

    Never had to write a girl a song
    Had a woman stay this long
    And now you're moving in
    And I'm alright with that

    I ain't got a pot of gold
    Girl I ain't even got a rainbow
    But I've heard that love is where
    Treasure can be found
    Don't expect too much from me
    And I won't let you down
    Don't expect too much from me
    And I won't let you down

    I won't let you down
    I won't let you down

    I won't let you down
    I won't let you down, baby Writer/s: ANNIE L. ROBOFF, BOB DI PIERO, KEITH LIONEL URBAN
