"Blood Red & Going Down"
by: tanya tucker
written by: Claude Putman Jr

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

Daddy said, "Now come girl,
we're headin' down the road to Augusta."
And faintly through his clenched teeth,
he called Mama's name, and then he cussed her

He said, "Girl, you're young, but some dude
has come along and stole your mother.
Ah, but you can't steal a willin' mind
'cause mama's always lookin' for a lover."

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

With dusty teardrops on his face,
my daddy cried an' big steps he was takin'
And halfway runnin' to keep up,
my shorter legs were so tired and shakin'
"Where did I go wrong, girl?
Why would she leave us both this way?"
At times like these, a child of ten
never knows exactly what to say

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

We searched in every bar room,
and honky-tonk as well
And finally Daddy found them, and Lord,
you know, the rest is hard to tell
He sent me out to wait, but scared,
I looked back through the door
And Daddy left them both soakin' up
the sawdust on the floor

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
