On The Road Again

September 2005

Well, I’m so tired of crying,
But I’m out on the road again.
Well, I’m so tired of crying,
But I’m out on the road again.
I ain’t got nobody
Just to call my special friend.

You know the first time I travelled
Out in the rain and snow –
In the rain and snow,
You know the first time I travelled
Out in the rain and snow –
In the rain and snow,
I didn’t have no payroll
Not even place to go

And my dear mother left me
When I was quite young –
When I was quite young.
And my dear mother left me
When I was quite young –
She said: “Lord have mercy
On my wicked one.”

Well now take it from me, mama,
Please don’t you cry no more –
Take a hint from me, mama,
Please don’t you cry no more –
‘Cause it’s soon one morning
Down the road I’ll go.

No I ain’t going down
That long old lonesome road
All by myself.
No I ain’t going down
That long old lonesome road
All by myself.
If you ain’t coming with me
Gonna take somebody else.

Well, I’m so tired of crying,
But I’m out on the road again.
I ain’t got nobody
Just to call my special friend.
I ain’t got nobody
Just to call my special friend.
I ain’t got nobody
Just to call my special friend.
