I've laid around and played around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, yeah, winter's comin' on
I've laid around and played around this old town too long
And I feel like I gotta travel on.

I've laid around and played around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, yeah, winter's comin' on
I've laid around and played around this old town too long
And I feel like I gotta travel on.

Poppa writes to Johnny but Johnny can't come home
Johnny can't come home, Johnny can't come home
Poppa writes to Johnny but Johnny can't come home
'Cause he's been in the war too long.

I've laid around and played around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, yeah, winter's comin' on
I've laid around and played around this old town too long
And I feel like I gotta travel on.

High sheriff and the police riding after me
Coming after me, yeah, coming after me
High sheriff and the police are coming after me
And I fee like I gotta travel on

I've laid around and played around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, yeah, winter's comin' on
I've laid around and played around this old town too long
And I feel like I gotta travel on.

Want to see my honey, want to see her bad
Want to see her bad, yeah, want to see her bad
I want to see my honey, want to see her bad
She's the best girl this old boy ever had.

I've laid around and played around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, yeah, winter's comin' on
I've laid around and played around this old town too long
And I feel like I gotta travel on.

I've laid around and played around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, yeah, winter's comin' on
I've laid around and played around this old town too long
And I feel like I gotta travel on
Yeah, I feel like I gotta travel on
I feel like I gotta travel on
