18 May '74 Hot 100


Sittin' in a railway station, My suitcase in my hand. Goin' back where I came from, Had more than I can stand. Watchin' men destroy my dreams, Picked my brain 'til it was clean. When I was up They knocked me down, hey. I ain't goin' to hang around I'm goin' ho-ho-home, hey, hey. (I'm comin' home) Yes I am. (Comin' home) More than I can stand, now doncha Tell someone to meet me, I'm comin' ho-ho-ho-home. Yeah, hey. (Tell someone to meet me) Why doncha? (Home) Yesseree. Gotta tell y'all. Came to this old town Seeking fortune and some fame. Never got the chance to prove myself Though I tried to play their game. Usin' people just ain't my thing, I don't dangle from any string. To please some fool that don't care about They turned me inside out, I'm goin' ho-ho-home, yeah.
