lyrics

Davy (Abe Loomis)

Come on Davy, knock me down
I’ve been too long here in this town
And nothing holds me any more
I’m just the local dinosaur

Come on buddy, shake a leg
You want to see a giant beg
But you gotta earn that golden crown
Come on Davy, knock me down

I won in Louisville last night
Another day, another fight
Left a dreamer on the mat
He’d never seen a left like that

A broken knuckle black and sore
But I signed on for this before
Way back when I was a kid
And fighting was just what I did

(chorus)

I could have left here once I guess
Just that one time if I’d said yes
I’d be a millionaire by now
Watching my money on the Dow

I’d probly have kids and a wife
Some kind of crazy happy life
But now I’m really talkin shit
Come on Dave where’d you learn to hit

(chorus)

I took my water at the bell
Spat into the wishing well
Walked out underneath the lights
From running cars on summer nights

A whiskey bottle cut my face
Somebody threw it in some place
A lot like this one years ago
I guess my hands were kinda low

(chorus)

Come on Davy knock me down
Come on Davy knock me down
Come on Davy knock me down
