Now whats up with the walkin man
I wonder where hes gone
Marchin down to Birmingham
I think Ill tag along
Was a walkin man come by here
A hundred years ago
Walkin down the trail of tears
Out to Oklahom-i-o out to Oklahome

Hand me down my walkin shoes
Hand me down my cane
Tune me up my mandolin
Ill be on my way, hey sure does smell like rain

Woody Guthrie was a walkin man
In the dust bowl days
Had a six string guitar in his hands
He killed a fascist every day
Chuck Berry is a walkin man
So was Ghandi too
Lace me up my ol Brogans
Thats just what Ill do
I got walkin left to do

Hand me down my walkin shoes
Hand me down my cane
Tune me up my mandolin
Ill be on my way, hey
If I had shoes like the walkin man
Tell you what Id do
Id walk away and not come back
Till I got to Katmandu-da-do-da
All the do-da-day
