Luther Allison – Cancel My Check lyrics

Well, I'm comin' back home
Where I belong
I'm comin' back a-home
Where I belong
Yes, I'm comin' back home
And get my friends I've left behind
I see ain't no great change
People standin' on the corner like they used to
Yeah, things ain't changed
People standin' on the corner like they used to
Well, I'm comin' back home
Where everybody's got the blues
The first thing I'm gonna do
Goin' down to the welfare shop
The first thing I'm gonna do
I'm goin' down to the welfare shop
I'm gonna have them to cancel my check
I still ain't got a job

Comin' home
Pack your bag
We're gettin' outta here
Forget about the past
We got a future out there, baby
This could have our last chance
No more hard
No more poverty
I'll get a better place
Where everybody's free
We could be proud
Of our brand new community
It's alright
It's alright
In the community, tonight
Be proud
Be proud of our new community
Come on, now

Comin' home
Comin' home
Comin' home, people
Gotta get home, yeah
I wanna move, ya'all
Come on now, play it
Well, ooh-ooh-yeah
Just gotta get ahead
Can't do it all by myself, no
I'm proud to be movin'
In the new community
