Battery wears down

hello, I have an 82 gmc c1500, 350 chevy, 4 speed auto. I am having a starting problem. When I try to start it, the starter engages and then the battery wears down in less than 10 secs or so, then the battery only has enough juice to make the solenoid click repeatedly and the battery has to be recharged..

Battery has voltage before cranking, then wears down during cranking. Battery terminals are clean. The headlights dim when cranking.

Can y'all give some direction on areas to check as to why this is happening?
