Song Lyrics

Although Don’t Go Down Baby is part of the Descension family, here, listening to the original recording (which is available in the Other Links tab), you’ll hear a slight different, with him doing some bassline work intro the song. Perhaps it shows more of how Petway would casually throw in small improvisations to his songs as he’d wait to dive right into a tune.
