Lyrics I'VE LAID AROUND
AND PLAYED AROUND
THIS OLD TOWN TOO LONG.
SUMMER'S ALMOST GONE,
YES,
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,
NO, JOHNNY CAN'T COME HOME.
POPPA WRITES TO JOHNNY,
BUT JOHNNY CAN'T COME HOME
'CAUSE HE'S BEEN
ON THE CHAIN GANG TOO LONG.

I'VE LAID AROUND
AND PLAYED AROUND
THIS OLD TOWN TOO LONG.
SUMMER'S ALMOST GONE,
YES, 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 POLICE RIDING AFTER ME,
RIDING AFTER ME,
YES, COMING AFTER ME.
HIGH SHERIFF
AND POLICE COMING AFTER ME
AND I FEEL LIKE
I GOTTA TRAVEL ON.

I'VE LAID AROUND
AND PLAYED AROUND
THIS OLD TOWN TOO LONG.
SUMMER'S ALMOST GONE,
YES, 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,
OH, WANT TO SEE HER BAD.
WANT TO SEE MY HONEY,
WANT TO SEE HER BAD
SHE'S THE BEST GIRL
THIS POOR BOY EVER HAD.

I'VE LAID AROUND
AND PLAYED AROUND
THIS OLD TOWN TOO LONG.
SUMMER'S ALMOST GONE,
YES, WINTER'S COMIN' ON.
I'VE LAID AROUND
AND PLAYED AROUND
THIS OLD TOWN TOO LONG
AND I FEEL LIKE
I GOTTA TRAVEL ON.
