On back down in my hometown
Everybody's feelin' it bad
No new breaks, whatever it takes
Not to have to sway it on a classified ad

Hey there Ma and Pa, here I am
Money's running out, all the same
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again

Up real late in New York state
Talkin' to my baby at night
She keeps me warm and protects me from harm
Love just keeps on rollin' when the money gets tight

Hey there Ma and Pa, where I am
Money's running out, all the same
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again

Oh, Mrs. Memory just take me on down
Back to the shanties and the cars by the lake
Oh, Mrs. Memory just take me on back
Back to my baby and make it okay
Yeah, just make it okay

On back down in my hometown
Everybody's feelin' the same
Good money spent, on keepin' the rent
Sent in to the man under a week late

Hey there Ma and Pa, where I am
Money's running out, all the same
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again
