George Strait performs "Down and Out"

"Down and Out" is a song written by Dean Dillon and Frank Dycus, and recorded by American country music artist George Strait. It was released in August 1981 as the second single from his album Strait Country. It peaked at number 16 on the United States Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and reached number 14 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart.

 

Kip Kirby of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, saying that the "unmistakable Texas honkytonk flavor of this record puts it in the "Unwound" mold with heavy fiddle and string guitar and ripples of piano."Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song a B- grade, comparing the fiddle section to his previous single "Unwound" and says that it is "easy to imagine this filling the honky-tonk floors just as quickly." He states that even though Strait sings it well, the lyric is weak and generic.

George Strait Down and Out lyrics

 

Well I'm out on a tear 'cause she's tearing me apart

If I look rough on the outside, you ought to see my heart.

And this look in my eyes shows beyond a doubt,

Since my woman left, I'm down and out.

Well, I'm down at the bar, out of my mind,

Tighter than an eight-day clock with no way to unwind,

That jukebox cries the blues like it knows what I'm about.

Since my woman left, I'm down and out.

Well I'm down to my last dollar, but I don't really care.

My friends have all got whiskey, and they don't mind if I share.

They know how it feels to have your heart torn inside out,

Since my woman left, I'm down and out.

Well, I'm down at the bar, out of my mind,

Tighter than an eight-day clock with no way to unwind,

That jukebox cries the blues like it knows what I'm about.

Since my woman left, I'm down and out.

Since my woman left, since my woman left,
