The First Step Down Is The Longest
Recorded by The Wilburn Brothers
Written by Ray Pennington
[3/4 time]

C F C
The first step down is the longest
G7 C
On your way down the ladder of disgrace
G7 C
Take the cap from the top of the bottle
G7 C
Just one drink then put it down that's what you say
F C
But one drink just leads to another
G7 C
That's the first step you're well on your way

F C
The first step down is the longest
G7 C
They get shorter the rest of the way
G7 C
Start talkin' to the wife of your best friend
G7 C
Tell her lines build her up she'll come around
F C
Win her heart bring her down to your level
G7 C
That's another step you’re pretty far down

F C
The first step down is the longest
G7 C
They get shorter the rest of the way
G7 C
Stay out late losing sleep till you can't work
G7 C
Go to places where you know you don't belong
F C
Lose your job your home and your family
G7 C
You're on the bottom now and it didn't take long

F C
The first step down is the longest
G7 C
On your way down the ladder of disgrace
