Two slightly different takes

[Lord/Well] i'm walkin' down the line
[I'm ] walkin' down the line
An' i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

I got a heavy-headed gal
I got a heavy-headed gal
I got a heavy-headed gal
She ain't a-feelin' well
When she's better only time will tell.

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
Walkin' down the line
An' i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

My money comes an' goes
My money comes an' goes
My money comes an' goes
An' rolls an' flows an' rolls an' flows
Thru the holes in the pockets in my clothes.

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
Walkin' down the line
An' i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

I seen the mornin' light
I seen the mornin' light
Well it's not because
I'm an early riser
I didn't go to sleep last nite.

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
Walkin' down the line
Lord i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

I got my walkin' shoes
I got my walkin' shoes
I got my walkin' shoes
An' i ain't a-gonna lose
What else can a poor boy do?

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
Lord i'm walkin' down the line
I'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.  up

  Folkways Studios - october 1962  

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
I'm walkin' down the line
An' i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

I got a heavy-headed gal
Got a heavy-headed gal
I got a heavy-headed gal
She ain't a-feelin' well
When she's better only time will tell.

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
Lord i'm walkin' down the line
An' i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

At the break of dawn
At the break of dawn
At the break of dawn
I'll be surely gone
I'm bound to go to Washington

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
An' i'walkin' down the line
Lord i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

My money comes an' goes
My money comes an' goes
My money comes an' goes
An' runs an' flows
Thru the holes in the pockets in my clothes.

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
An' i'm walkin' down the line
Lord i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.

I saw the mornin' light
I saw the mornin' light
[I saw the morn..] not because
I'm an early riser
I didn't go to sleep last nite.

Lord i'm walkin' down the line
Lord i'm walkin' down the line
An' i'm walkin' down the line
My feet'll be a-flyin'
To tell about my troubled mind.  up
