John Denver — Downhill Stuff lyrics

This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the John Denver Album, and has also been released on the Country Classics Album.

Blue river blues
I'd rather be outside
Here I am inside
Watching it rain

Blue river blues
I'd rather be somewhere
Here I am nowhere
Watching it rain

Some people like that downhill stuff
They like it fast and breezy
Some people walk on the other side
They like it slow and easy

Some people run on a mountain trail
Some like it wild and rough
Some like to fly and some like to sail
Some like the downhill stuff

There's work in what we practice
Work in the things we say
Sometime we work just to try to make a livin'
Or we're workin' just to make it pay

Sometimes we're tryin' to work our will
But that won't work anyway
I only know that I'm workin' still
Just to get another chance to play

Some people like that downhill stuff
They like it fast and breezy
Some people walk on the other side
They like it slow and easy

Some people run on a mountain trail
Some like it wild and rough
Some like to fly and some like to sail
Some like the downhill stuff

Keep a movin' in a forward direction
Like a river rollin' down to the sea
If you wanna make different selection
Honey let yourself go with gravity

Oh everybody's lookin' for heaven
Everybody's lookin' for hope
Everybody lookin' for higher and higher
But nobody wants to be lookin' alone

Everybody's tryin' to get down to it
Everybody's tryin' to sing
Whatever it is we're all gonna do it
But whatever we do
We gotta do our own thing

Some people like that downhill stuff
They like it fast and breezy
Some people walk on the other side
They like it slow and easy

Some people run on a mountain trail
Some like it wild and rough
Some like to fly and some like to sail
Some like the downhill stuff
