“Goin’ Down” was written by Don Nix, but Freddie King had the famous version of it.

IIRC, Fleetwood Mac played “Goin’ Down” as the encore when Dave Walker was in the band. What’s interesting is that The Zoo encored with it in 1992 with Bekka singing lead and Peter Green did it on his 1996 comeback album with The Splinter Group.
On and on it will always be, the rhythm, rhyme, and harmony.
