Jesus cried, wept and died
I guess He went up to heaven
Ive been downtown such a long, long time
Ill never make it home by seven

Wont You come and take me home?
Ive been too long at the fair
And, Lord, I just cant stand it anymore

Well, I went down to Chasons
Walked till my feet got sore
I never knew what laughin was
Till you walked out the door

Wont You come and take me home?
Ive been too long at the fair
And, Lord, I just cant stand it anymore

Well, you can give my soul to Abraham
Give my soul to Saul
Give my bones to Canada
My feet they dont hurt at all

I dont know who made the highway
I guess thats just my pride
But I have heard the prince of darkness
On his charger ride

The silver blade is gleamin
The scales are in his hands
I swear another night is fallin
Dont you lose another man

Wont You come and take me home?
Ive been too long at the fair
And, Lord, I just cant stand it anymore
