lifeblood: songs: lyrics: hammond song


if you go down to hammond
forget about us
in my opinion
that would be just
throwing yourself away
not even trying
(you're not trying)
ooooooo
ooooooo

if you go with that fella
(fella)
forget about us
as far as i'm concerned
that would be just
throwing yourself away
not even trying
come on
(come on)
you're
lying to me
(lying)

well i went down to hammond
i did as i pleased
i ain't the only one
(not the only one)
who's got this disease
(not the only one)
(i'm not the only one)
why don't you face the fact
you old upstart
we
we all fall apart
(if you go with that fella)

you'd be okay if you'd
just stay in school
don't be a
fool

do your eyes have an answer
to this song of mine
they say we meet again
on down the line
where is on down the line
how far away
tell me i'm okay
(tell me i'm okay)

and if you go down to hammond
(if you go down to hammond)
(if you go down to hammond)
you'll never come back

words and music by margaret a. roche
as performed in 1985 at the purple parrot - atlanta, georgia
