  • Well I woke up this morning when the cold Chicago wind
    Blew my newspaper blanket off my back
    Through my dirty broken window the grey sun filtered in
    As I dreamed about the Southbound railroad track
    I could almost hear the crickets in a sleepy cotton field
    As daddy drove our wagon to Virginia
    But today I'd give a fortune for a twenty five cent meal
    And I wish I was a country boy again
    So let me ride on the Southbound
    Back to where I came from I don't care or where I am
    Let me ride on the Southbound and put me off somewhere near Birmingham

    What happened to my vision of a mansion on a hill
    And the fame and fortune I came here to win
    I've got nothing but the roaches running cross my window sill
    And I wish I was a country boy again
    So let me ride
