I'm calling from the station
And I haven't got much time to let you know
Got a ticket for Missouri
And there's things I need to say before I go

If I could I'd have you meet me but I don't see how I can
I don't have enough to pay your fare
There's a factory in Columbus hiring now I understand
And they're looking for an able bodied man

You should meet some money
In the letter that I mailed two days ago
But when I wrote the letter saying
You could come to me I didn't know

And I was goin' to lose my job in such a little while
So now we're gonna have to change our plan
They may not hire me in Columbus but I'm pretty sure they will
'Cause they're looking for an able bodied man

If I'd have more education
Now I'd have made a better life for me and you
But just simple manual labor
Is the only kind of work that I can do

The bus is loadin' for Missouri so, I guess, I'd better go
I'll call you just as soon as I can, I'll be sending you a ticket
'Cause I think I'll get a job if they're looking for
An able bodied man and remember I'm your able bodied man
