DON'T BACK DOWN

Studio version 5


When the night wind rustles far away
Rolling down the Conna valley through the cottonwood trees
And we watched the river rises with last season's rains
I awake in the darkness and I call your name

Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
Don't back down

Baby, don't back down on our love
Don't back down on our love
[recording abandoned]
