Playdown lyrics

I'm not a ghost, I am a man.
I only do the best I can ,
believing I will find a way,
it's just a price that you must pay.

For my friends, they put me down,
so I go from town to town.
They all say that I'm a clown.
They play high and I play down.
They play high and I play.

I play the game, I see the light,
I walk in day, you walk in night.
Believe me, boy, it ain't no good
in doing what you never should.

All my friends, they put me down,
so I go from town to town.
They all say that I'm a clown.
They play high and I play down.
They play high and I play.

All my friends, they put me down,
so I go from town to town.
They all say that I'm a clown.
They play high and I play down.
They play high and I play.
