Slow Down lyrics

I said slow down (slow down) and live my friend
Take time (take time) to understand
The things (the things) you hope to win
Before (before) your journey's end
Slow down (slow down) and try to do
The things (the things) that's right for you
You know the soul you save could be your own

Albert Abernathy never spent a foolish dime
Rising at the crack of dawn and working overtime
Though he never told me how much happiness he found
Yesterday we laid him in the finest grave in town

I said slow down...

Little Sally Tremble is a Music City Queen
You can see her picture now on ever' magazine
Sally's come a long way from the life she left behind
She's had six gold records and been married seven times

I said slow down...
I said slow down...
