Title: Goin' Down Slow

Willie Dixon: Man, you know
I done enjoyed things that kings and queens will never have. In fact,
kings and queens can never get.
And they don't even know about. And good times, mmmmm-hmmmm.

I have had my fun, if I never get well no more.
I have had my fun, if I never get well no more.
All my health is failin on me, oh yes, I'm goin down slow.

Willie Dixon: Now looka here, I did not say I was a millionaire.
But, I said I have spent more money than a millionaire.
Cause if I had a kept all the money that I already spent,
I woulda been a millionaire a long time ago.
And women, great drooblin moobilie.

Please, write my mama, tell her the shape I'm in.
Please, write my old mother, tell her the shape I'm in.
Tell her to pray for me, forgive me for my sin.

"Going Down Slow" is a blues song written by St. Louis Jimmy Oden, originally released in 1941. Howlin' Wolf included the song on his 1962 Rocking Chair Album.

The song alternates between sung and spoken passages. The sung passages are the reflections of a dying man:

Please write my mother, tell her the shape I'm in
Tell her to pray for me, forgive me for my sin

The spoken passages (by Willie Dixon on Wolf's release) deal with relationship:

Now looka here...
I did not say I was a millionaire...
But I said I have spent more money than a millionaire!
Cause if I had've kept all my money that I'd already spent,
I would've been a millionaire a looong time ago...

Due largely to Wolf's recording, it has since become a blues standard, and has been recorded by countless blues and rock artists, including:
