Walkin' on this road to my town. Walkin' on this road to home.
Travelin' through these hills and valleys. Travelin' and I'm all alone.
Gonna see my momma. Gonna see my pa. I been a long time movin'. I get to wonderin' how they are.
Gonna see the parson. That's if I can find him in. I bet he's down there fishin'. Fishin' with my brother Jim.
And if I never get there, tell you what I'm goin' to do. Gonna write 'em letter. Tell 'em I'll be singing you.
