cd imgSELF PORTRAIT

  Self Portrait recording session 6, Columbia Studios, NYC - 5.mar.1970  

Done laid around, done stayed around
This ol town too long, summer's almost gone
Winter's comin on
Done laid around, done stayed around
This ol town too long
An' it seems like i've gotta travel on
An' it seems like i've gotta travel on.

Papa writes to Johnny, Johnny can you come home
Johnny can you come home, Johnny can you come home
Papa writes to Johnny
Johnny can you come home
Johnny's been out on the road too long.

So i done laid around, done stayed around
This ol town too long, summer's almost gone
Winter's comin on
Done laid around, done stayed around
This ol town too long
An' it seems like i've gotta travel on.

That chilly wind will soon begin, an' i'll be on my way
Goin home to stay, goin home to stay
That chilly wind will soon begin
An' i'll be on my way
An i feel like i just wanna travel on.

So i done laid around, done stayed around
This ol town too long, summer's almost gone
Winter's comin on
Oh yes i done laid around
Done stayed around
This ol town too long
An' it seems like i've gotta travel on.

There's a lonesome freight at 6.08, a-comin thru the town
I'll be homeward bound, i'll be homeward bound
A lonesome freight at 6.08
Comin on thru the town
An i feel like i just wanna travel on.

Well i done laid around, done stayed around
This ol town too long, summer's almost gone
Winter's comin on, yes it is
Done laid around, done stayed around
This ol town too long
An' it seems like i've gotta travel on.  up
