Patty Loveless performs "On Down The Line ",live video.

"On Down the Line" is a song written by Kostas, and recorded by American country music artist Patty Loveless. It was released in May 1990 as the first single and title track from her album On Down the Line.

The song came from a collection of songs written by Kostas. He was the writer of "Timber I'm Falling in Love" and many other tunes that Loveless recorded. When Tony Brown (Loveless' producer at the time) heard the song, he wasn't sure it was meant for her because of some of the lyrics in the third verse. While Loveless was recording it in the studio, actually putting the tracks down to the song, Kostas was rewriting the last verse. Once Brown heard this rewritten third verse, it just worked, it just absolutely worked and Loveless was very pleased how it turned out.

The song charted for 20 weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart, reaching number 5 during the week of July 21, 1990.

Patty Loveless - On Down the Line lyrics

 

Tryin' to make a livin

That's the bottom line

It ain't easy tryin' to stretch

A nickle into a dime

Sweatin' for the dollar

Workin' for the man

Half goes to the

Landlord, Lord

And half to Uncle Sam

I can't get no consolation

I don't get no paid vacation

I can't get no satisfaction

And my tractor don't get no traction

Just doin' the best I can

Tryin' to make a stand

Laughin' and cryin'

Livin' and dyin' on down the line

I'll leave my soul to Jesus

I'll give my heart to you

And if you want the rest of me

Well, darlin you can have that too

Only love can save me

So darlin don't be late

If I don't get your lovin soon

I swear I'm gonna die today

I can't get no consolation

I don't get no paid vacation

I can't get no satisfaction

And my tractor don't get no traction

Just doin' the best I can

Just tryin' to make a stand

Laughin' and cryin'

Livin' and dyin' on down the line

If I were a rich girl

It wouldn't be the same

I'd buy me a cadilac

And then I'd change my name

A poor girls dream inside me

And you by my side

We drive into the sunset

Ride sweet baby ride

I can't get no consolation

I don't get no paid vacation

I can't get no satisfaction

And my tractor don't get no traction

Just doin' the best I can

Tryin' to make a stand

Laughin' and cryin'

Livin' and dyin' on down the line

On down the line

On down the line

On down the line
