A.k.a. "Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad"", "Blowin' Down This Road", "Chilly Winds" and "Way Down in Jail on My Knees".
There are many versions of the song's words.
I'm going down this road feeling bad
I'm going down this road feeling bad
I'm going down this road feeling bad, lord, lord
And I ain't a-gonna be treated this a-way

But also:
I'm going down that long lonesome road lord, lord
I'm going down that long lonesome road
I'm going down that long lonesome road lord, lord
I ain't gonna be treated this way

Well I'm going where those chilly winds don't blow
Going where those chilly winds don't blow
Well I'm going where those chilly winds don't blow lord, lord
I ain't gonna be treated this way

Some have these opening two verses -

Going down the road feeling bad
Going down the road feeling bad
Going down the road feeling bad, hey hey hey, yeah
Don't wanna be treated this a way

Going where the climate suits my clothes
I'm going where the climate suits my clothes
Going where the climate suits my clothes
Don't wanna be treated this a way

Bill Monroe's version starts out this way (talking about "down in the jailhouse on my knees")

I'm going down this road feeling bad
I'm going down this road feeling bad
I'm going down this road feeling bad, lord, lord
And I ain't a-gonna be treated this a-way

Down in the jailhouse on my knees
Down in the jailhouse on my knees
Down in the jailhouse on my knees,Great God
And I ain't a-gonna be treated this a-way

They feed me on corn bread and beens
They feed me on corn bread and beens
They feed me on corn bread and beens, O lord
And I ain't a-gonna be treated this a-way
