Peter, Paul & Mary – Settle Down lyrics

I'm goin' down that highway, goin' to another town.
Baby when i find what i'm looking for, well then maybe i'll settle down.

Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.
Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.

I worked my way from boston to that san francisco bay
Baby what i was looking for, i couldn't find along the way.

Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.
Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.

Never been contented no matter where i roam
It ain't no fun to see a settin' sun when you're far away from home.

Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.
Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.

I've worked in the mills of pittsburgh, in the hills of tennessee,
Baby all i want is to find a job that will set my mind at ease.

Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.
Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.

Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.
Why don't you help me brother, i'm a stranger in your town
Why don't you help me sister, and then maybe i'll settle down.
