Woman down
Down on her luck
There goes the man, there goes the plan, there goes the truck
Woman down
Down to one prayer
God get me through it for the two asleep upstairs
She can’t breathe, but she ain’t dyin’
And there ain’t no time for cryin’
There’s a Phoenix down inside when
Her feet are to the fire

[Chorus]
Who you gonna bet on when the sky is fallin’
Been to hell and back, up against the wall, then
Gets knocked down, but ain’t afraid of crawlin’
Who’s your money on
Who’s your money on
She can make a mountain move
And do it in her high heeled shoes
If she ain’t back up yet, just stick around
You can’t keep a woman down

A woman down
A woman down
Don’t stay down long
Can’t come unglued, yeah, she’s got too much goin’ on
If she’s out of land, she’ll finda boat
Can’t find a hand, she’ll find some rope
All out of heart, she’ll find some hope
Where you swear it can’t be found

[Repeat Chorus]

A woman down
A woman down
Who you gonna bet on when the sky is fallin’
Who you gonna call on when the devil’s callin’
Who you gonna bet on when the sky is fallin’
Who you gonna call on when the devil’s callin’

[Repeat Chorus]

Who you gonna bet on when the sky is fallin’
A woman down
Who you gonna call on when the devil’s callin’
A woman down
Who you gonna bet on when the sky is fallin’
A woman down
Who you gonna call on when the devil’s callin’
