Goin' Down To The Courthouse

Lyrics by Zach Hamer

I said I believe
I believe a change is sure gonna come
I said I believe
Yeah, I believe a change is sure gonna come
Well, I lost my little mama
Hey baby, where you come from?

I get up every mornin'
Fold my hands and pray for rain
Yeah, I get up every mornin'
Fold my hands and pray for rain
Well, that new man you been lovin'
Can have my room just the same

Well, you got twenty years behind you
Now it's heaven here again
Yeah, you got twenty years behind you
Now it's heaven here again
Well, everybody wants you
Lord knows you don't need 'em in the end

When I look out my door
To the visions on the street
Yeah, I look out my door
To the visions on the street
When everything is burning
Lord knows you can't stand the heat

I'm leavin' town tomorrow
Goin' on the run
I'm leavin' town tomorrow
Goin' on the run
Well, my life is almost over
Lord knows my race is almost run

Goin' down to the courthouse
Gonna change my name
Goin' down to the courthouse
Gonna change my name
It don't fit me no more
No, I don't want it the same

Goin' down to the river
Gonna lose my mind
Goin' down to the river
Gonna lose my mind
I've seen black magic
On the riverside

Goin' back to Georgia
Gonna see my home
One more time to Georgia
Don't wanna be alone
Gonna see my ma 
Gonna see my pa one more time
