I've been here a month or more stuck in this ol' city
Folks that have to call this home, they the ones I pity Lord I'm homesick
and blues are the only tunes I ever seem to pick
I go out and walk the streets 'til I get blisters on my feet
I'm southbound
[ banjo - dobro ]
I'm all right 'til late at night sittin' by my window
I count sheep but I can't sleep list'nin to that train blow I begin to pine
When I hear that great big engine rollin' down the line
I'm goin' back to spend some time where I can't fall when I ain't got a dime
I'm southbound
[ ac.guitar - harmonica ]
Southbound's burnin' the ground Lord I don't mean maybe
Sure am glad I caught this train; gonna see my baby Lord I'm lonesome
and I long to see those hills where I come from
Listen the engine's rattle 'n roar, carryin' me back home once more I'm southbound
