Down The Line

Down The Line

Escrita por Buddy Holly y Bob Montgomery

Interpretada por Buddy & Bob

Sorprende que un tema como éste, con todos los ingredientes esenciales del primer Rock'n'Roll y una energía fuera de toda duda, permaneciera inédito hasta 1965. Fue registrado a mediados de 1955 en los Nesman Studios de Wichita Falls (Texas) y, tras la muerte de Buddy, cayó en las manos de Norman Petty, de manera que la versión final que apareció por primera vez en el LP "Holly in the Hills" contó con los inevitables arreglos instrumentales de The Fireballs.

Well, my old car's rollin' down the line

Thoughts of my baby runnin' through my mind

She's waitin' for me, I gotta be on time

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

 

The white marker's flying off the road below

Man, I'm really flyin' low

My baby's waitin', I can't go slow

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

 

Well, a big policeman pulled alongside me

He said "Boy you ain't quite as fast as me!"

I showed him a picture of that baby of mine

He said "Boy you gotta roll on down that line!"

 

Well, my old car's rollin' down the line

Thoughts of my baby runnin' through my mind

She's waitin' for me, I gotta be on time

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go
