Busted flat in Baton Rouge
West Virginia
With a dollar in my hand.
I'm sitting in the railroad station
Waiting for a train.
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Take me home, where my thought's escapin'
Home, where the deer and the antelope play.
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans,
Where I'm bound, I can't tell.
And the good times are all gone,
So I'll follow the sun.
And as I look around me at the four grey walls that surround me,
Well, already I'm so lonesome I could die.
I've looked at love from both sides now,
Seen sunny days I thought would never end.
If I were a carpenter
I'd hammer in the mornin'.*

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
And rock-a-bye Sweet Baby James.
