Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na

Now rained out in Memphis, dropped down to New Orleans
Rode the Mississippi, hey we'll hit the St. Louis, ha
Cut across to Texas, dropped down to San Antone
Doubled back through Houston, sure do feel like home

You're gonna miss your water, you're gonna miss your wine
I sure miss my baby's honeysuckle vine
Lookin' for your lighthouse, south of the border time
You don't miss your garden till the sun don't shine
When the sun don't shine, when the sun don't shine, hey

Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na

Well, I dropped by a church house, tried talkin' to the man
Can't tell him everythin' but I tell him what I can, hmm
Stopped by the barroom down by the union hall
Next thing I know a man said hey, said last call

You're gonna miss your water, you're gonna miss your wine
I sure miss my baby's honeysuckle vine
Lookin' for your lighthouse, south of the border time
You don't miss your garden till the sun don't shine
When the sun don't shine, when the sun don't shine

Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Woah, uh, ow, hey

You're gonna miss your water, you're gonna miss your wine
I sure miss my baby's honeysuckle vine
Lookin' for your lighthouse, south of the border time
You don't miss your garden till the sun don't shine
When the sun don't shine, when the sun don't shine

Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na
Hey, ha, ha
