This is his latest album, released in March of this year. All songs are written and copyrighted by Delbert himself. The CD is available at Amazon/Borders for $13.99 and at Barnes & Noble for $14.98, and I'm sure at many other places for around the same price.

Each of those sites have 5 RA sound clips from the album that you can download if you wish.

Subject: Lyr Add: LIVIN' IT DOWN (Delbert McClinton)
From: Jim Dixon

My transcription from Spotify:

Written by Benmont Tench, Delbert McClinton, & Gary Nicholson
As sung by Delbert McClinton on "Nothing Personal" (2001)

1. My ship came in and she sunk it.
I was the toast of the town and she drunk it.
I had a run of good luck and she ran it right into the ground,
And now she's puttin' on a show and I get to play the clown.

2. I had the wind in my sails and she took it.
I had the world by the tail and she shook it.
I reached out for a lifeline and she threw me a noose.
I got the short end of the chicken and she got the golden goose.

CHORUS. She's livin' it up and I'm tryin' to live it down.
Just when I got it all together, it's all about to come unwound.
Ev'rybody laughin' behind my back; man, it sure is a sad old sound.
She's out there livin' it up and I'm tryin' to live it down.

3. I had my ducks in a row and she shot 'em.
I had my eggs in a basket; she dropped 'em.
I threw her out of the house but she was back like a boomerang.
Sometimes you get the honey; sometimes all you get is the sting.


She's a-livin' it up, and I may never live it down.
