gotta travel on
lyrics

I've laid around and played around this old town too long

Summer's almost gone yes winter's comin' on

I've laid around and played around this old town too long

And I feel like I've gotta travel on

Papa writes to Johnny but Johnny can't come home

Johnny can't come home no Johnny can't come home

Papa writes to Johnny but Johnny can't come home

Cause he's been on the chain gang too long

I've laid around...

High sheriff and police ridin' after me ridin' after me yeah they're comin' after me

High sheriff and police ridin' after me and I feel like I've gotta travel on

I've laid around...

I wanna see my honey wanna see her bad

Wanna see her bad yeah wanna see her bad

Wanna see my honey wanna see her bad she's the best girl this poor boy ever had

I've laid around...

And I feel like I've gotta travel on
