I packed up my suitcase filled with all the things I need
I got this old box and an extra set of guitar strings
Told my gal there’s a lot of this country I aint never seen

My woman said she’s fine with it go on ramble around
Go see the big cities bright lights out of this one horse town
But if you don’t be a good boy im tearing this happy house down

My first opportunity I jumped on a long black train
But I ended up in cuffs the very first stop they made
I learned things aint nothing like they used to be back in the days

When they let me out the jail house I put my thumb out with a plan
And some fellas picked me up in a souped up Chevrolet van
They robbed me of my guitar and started up a traveling band

Now im walking down the highway with nothing but what ive got on
And im looking for a reason of why I ever wanted to roam
Id like to see my gal but im a thousand miles away from home

Now my hairs hit my shoulders, and it looks like im needing a shave
The holes in my boots are a whole lot bigger today
And if I ever make it home, home is where im gonna stay
