INTRO (spoken, Yank: I'm gonna leave my baby this mornin'.)

Lord, I decided that I would be hobo, Lord, I'll hobo a long, long way from home
Lord, I decided that I would be hobo, you know I hobo an awful long way from home
You know, every time I get to thinkin' about my baby, man, I couldn't do nothin' but hang my head and moan

Baby, and every time I decide to hobo, I take the jungle to be my home
Every time I would decide to hobo, Lord, take the jungle, Lord, to be my home
Now, you know, I'm gon do just like the prodigal son, I'm goin' back home and acknowledge I've done wrong (Spoken: I ain't gonna leave you no more, baby.)

That mornin', 'bout half past four, Lord, that old freight train begin to reel and rock
Lord, that mornin' 'bout half past four, man, that old freight train begin to reel and rock (Spoken, Yank: Lord have mercy)
You know, I went to the door and I looked out, Sonny, I didn't know what this was all about

SOLO (Spoken: Now Boy, just tetch it, take it on down there for me! Washboard Sam, I ain't studyin' you. Mitch, you just whup that can to death)

Lord, the lightnin' it was flashin', boy, and the dark cloud was risin' in the East (Spoken, Sonny Boy: Old Yank Rachell stay here a little while, you know. Spoken: Yank: Yes, my Lord, listen, Sonny)
Lord, the lightnin' it was flashin', a dark cloud was risin' in the East (Spoken, Yank: You know I don't feel good.)
Lord, then I hung my head and I cry, mmm, Lord, I wonder what's gon' become of me

Lord, I'm back home with my baby, Lord, I'm just as happy as I can be
Well, I'm back home with my baby, I'm just as happy as I can be
But the next time I decide to hobo, I'm gonna have my woman right beside of me
