Ain't Going Down This Time  Tony Joe White

Intro: Bm
Bm G ? A Bm
I ?ve been layin? low - livin? in the shadows
Spendin? ti[Em7]me alone - conversations with the wa[Bm]ll
Hangin? on
[G]I?m just [A]tryin? to [Bm] matter
And I rema[Em7]in, t[G]ryin? to make some sen[A]se of it al[Bm]l
[G]I ?ve been here [A]before, I?m familiar with the pai[Bm]n
[G]But I ain?t runnin? no m[A]ore, there?s one thing cha[F#]nged (-stop-)
Ain?t goin? down this t[Bm]ime,
[G]This time I [A]ain?t goin?[Bm] down
Like an undertow - I feel the promis of the nighttime
But I?ve been down that road - and my search came to an end
I hit the motherload
Enough blues for a lifetime
Now I?m digging deep inside, tryin? to find my way back again
You know you?ve entered the danger zone
When you look in the eyes and there?s no one home
Ain?t goin? down this time
This time I ain?t goin? down
 Bm-G-A-Bm Em7-Bm G-A-Bm Em7-G-A-Bm

Deep in the night - I miss a woman?s touch
The fire burns strong - and I?m drawn to the flame
But I pay the price
When I get caught up in the heartbeat
And passion flows - un-res-trained
No one left to blame - I?m faced with the truth
And it?s all too plain - when there?s nothing left to lose
Ain?t goin? down this time
This time I ain?t goin? down
