Lyrics

Lyrics to I’m tore down by Sonny Thompson.

I’m tore down.
I’m almost level with the ground.
I’m tore down.
I’m almost level with the ground.
Why’d, I feel like this
when my baby can’t be found?

I went to the river to jump in.
My baby showed up and said,
“I will tell you when.”

Well, I’m tore down,
I’m almost level with the ground.
Why’d, I feel like this
when my baby can’t be found?

I love you babe
with all my heart and soul.
Love like mine will never grow old.
Love you in the morning
and in the evening too.
Every time you leave me
I get mad with you.

Well, I’m tore down,
I’m almost level with the ground.
Why’d, I feel like this
when my baby can’t be found?

Love you baby with all my might.
Love like mine is out of sight.
I’ll lie for you if you want me to.
I really don’t believe that your love is true.

Well, I’m tore down,
I’m almost level with the ground.
Why’d, I feel like this
when my baby can’t be found?

I’m tore down,
I’m almost level with the ground.
Well, I’m tore down,
I’m almost level with the ground.
Why’d, I feel like this
when my baby can’t be found?
