Woke up this morniní, the train was passing by
Says, I woke up this morniní, the train was passing by
Well, I didnít have my fare, I wished that I could fly

This town have beat me, I want to ramble on
This town have beat me, I want to ramble on
If I see a freight train, I wonít be Ďround here long

I ainít got no money, canít get no woman here
Says, I ainít got no money, canít get no woman here
Says, they donít want no man, canít buy them daily beer

Last night, I dreamed that the, whole Ďround world was mine
Last night, I dreamed that the, whole Ďround world was mine
Says, I woke up this morniní, I did not have a dime

Says, Iím down this morniní, but Iíll be up some day
Lord, Iím down this morniní, but Iíll be up some day
When the first freight train pass by, Iíll be on my way

Johnm:
Hi Harry,
I think the end of the first two lines of the second verse is "RAMBLE ON"
All best,
Johnm

islandgal:
Harry, in the last line of the third verse, it sounds to me like he is singing "Says, they donít want no man, canít buy them daily beer."

Jean

Harry:
Thanks, John and Jean.

Harry:
Can't Control My Mind

INTRO

I woke up this morniní, my mind was runniní two different ways
I woke up this morniní, my mind was runniní two different ways
I had one mind to leave this town, and one mind to stay

I wonder do my baby, ever think of me
Well, I wonder do my baby, ever think of me
She keeps me worried and bothered, worried all the time

It have been days, I didnít have no place to go
It have been days, I didnít have no place to go
When I went back to my baby, she said ďget up where you goiní goĒ

GUITAR/PIANO SOLO

I hate to see the evening sun go down, behind the cherry tree
Said, I hate to see the evening sun go down, behind the cherry tree
When baby walked away and left me, you know that is killing me

It was early this morniní, my tears come falliní down
It was early this morniní, my tears come falliní down
She worried me, worried and bothered, Iíve got to leave this town
