J. J. Cale – Waymore's Blues lyrics

Well, I woke up this mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
Around the curve come a passenger train
Heard somebody yodel, hobo moan
Jimmy he dead, he been a long time gone
Been a long time gone, been a long time gone

If you wanna get to heaven gotta D I E
You gotta put on your coat and T I E
Wanna get the rabbit out of the L O G
You gotta make a commotion like a D O G
Like a D O G, like a D O G

Well, I gotta good woman, what's the matter with me?
Makes me wanna love every woman I see
I was traveling when I met her, now I'm traveling again
The woman I see looks like the place I came in
The place I came in, like the place I came in

Well, I got my name printed on my shirt
Ain't no ordinary dude, I don't have to work
I don't have to work, don't have to work
