Sittin' in a railway station with my suitcase in my hand
Goin' back where I came from, I've had more than I can stand
Of watchin' men destroy my dreams, they picked my brain 'till it was clean
When I was up they knocked me down
I ain't goin' to hand around, I'm goin' home, yes I am
(Goin' home) won't you understand, why doncha?
Tell someone to meet me, I'm comin' home
(Tell someone to meet me) why doncha?
Came to this old town seeking fortune and some fame
I never got the chance to prove myself, though I tried to play their game
Usin' people just ain't my thing and I won't dangle from any string
To please some fool that don't care about
They turned me inside out, I'm goin' home
Back to back you know (I'm goin' home) I got it you know too
I know what's I'm gonna do, I'll tell someone to meet me
Goin' home, yes I am, will ya meet me
(Tell someone to meet me home) when you're down and out, hey hey
I gotta admit it,
I'm really not ashamed,
Of half the things I said
And I don't want nobody
Tryin' to show me pity
'Cause I've had more than I can stand
And better woman I'll be a better man
I can rearrange my life
Might even find me a pretty wife, hey hey hey (home)
Won'tcha wait for me
Starts, begins groovin' (Comin' home)
Oh, lord have mercy, try to be, try to be a good man
Gonna (I'm gonna tell someome to meet me) try to get me somethin' together, I'm goin' home
Yes I am, hey hey hey
(Tell someome to meet me) why doncha? Why doncha? Why doncha?
(Tell someome to meet me) well, why doncha?
(Tell someome to meet me) oh, hey!
It was gonna get steady, but I came to the city
Livin' in a cold life place for the nothin' hey!
You know I gotta get back out
Ain't used to livin' like that see
It's been a long time
Since I felt like a real man
Comin' to the city,
Hey, you have the wrong thing
Have my things on my back
I'm goin' back where I came from
Yeah, 'cause don't nobody really care about you, ain't having no fun
