I’m on my long journey home

I’m homesick and lonesome, I’m feeling kinda blue
I’m feeling kinda blue, Lord I’m feeling kinda blue
Homesick and lonesome, I’m feeling kinda blue
I’m on my long journey home

There’s a great big hole in the bottom of my shoe
The rain comes in and my foot goes through
I wore a hole in the bottom of my shoe
I’m on my long journey home

It’s cloudy in the West and it looks like rain
It looks like rain, Lord it looks like rain
It’s cloudy in the West and it looks like rain
I’m on my long journey home

There’s black smoke rising and it looks like a train
It looks like a train, it surely is my train
Black smoke rising and it surely is my train
I’m on my long journey home

Methuselah walked ten hundred years
When he saw that engineer
He must have cried ten thousand tears
I’m on my long journey home

If you get to heaven and you don’t see
My name on that train to eternity
Back it up, come rescue me
I’m on my long journey home

I hear that train coming and I’ll soon be gone
I’ll soon be gone, Lord I’ll soon be gone
I hear that train coming and I’ll soon be gone
I’m on my long journey home
