Lyr Add: Ain't Leavin' Your Love (Townes Van Zandt (2) Ain't Leavin' Your Love 14 Jan 00


Here's a nice song:

AIN'T LEAVIN' YOUR LOVE
(Townes Van Zandt)


Well, Mr. Gator, he's a-glidin' down the bayou;
Mr. Buzzard, he's a-slidin' through the air
Mr. Turnip, he's a-hittin' the highway.
I ain't goin' nowhere


CHORUS:
I ain't leavin' your love; I ain't leavin' your love.
Not for heaven above, Babe, I ain't leavin' your love.


Well the poor man got him an airplane;
Tryin' to cruise across a traffic jam
Well, the rich man got him a Chevrolet;
I'm stayin' right where I am.


CHORUS


Well, now, Hannibal, he climbed the mountains,
And Cleopatra danced down the Nile
Lindberg made all the way to gay Paris;
I'm stayin' right here awhile.


CHORUS (twice)
