13th Floor Elevators I Don't Ever Want to Come Down




One 13th Floor Elevators I Don't Ever Want to Come Down video by scrambledheadz and another by Mick.

This was a Gold Star acetate. There is a single existing copy of this 10" acetate. It was discovered at the former Gold Star Studios in the mid-1980's and was sold in a Goldmine magazine auction to a private collector in 1985. This acetate was the source of the previously lost/forgotten song I Don't Ever Want To Come Down which was first released on the Elevator Tracks LP in 1987.

13th Floor Elevators I Don't Ever Want to Come Down lyrics:

Well some they pledge allegiance while others treasure seek
And soul wisdom spoken back, each life will be unique
Some want only pleasure, you only want to please
Or bring as the highest life that prayer ever sees.

I don’t ever want to come down from your village and your big town

I won’t tell foreigners earth’s their home
Well armed by the life you’ve been making
And not crush powers not your own
Just stick to your own overtaking

I don’t ever want to come down from your village and your big town

Encouraging all men, I wish you would
To live in a fable, I wish you would
I can’t do no other with you and David’s Saint fable
I’m not even trying to or curious fair
Each unicorn makes it completely prepared

I don’t ever want to come down from your village and your big town

Awesome song! Have had this on a cassette comp given to me by a freind back in the early 90's. Covered this song with an old band but had to make up a few of the lyrics. Surprised that I got most of them right though! Thanks for posting the lyrics, I have wondered for years if what I came up with was accurate or not since my source was a muddy recording from a cassette to a cassette...that and Roky's acidic delivery make for difficult deciphering! Thanx again!
