Lyrics

Ridin' on the jitney train from Sanford to Lillington
I been gone a long long time and I sure am missing home But I'll be there my late tonight in these traveling shoes When I get there I'll never leave got the Summervilla blues
Well I left home at sixteen years trying to find may
Not a nickel in my gunny sack no food upon my plate
And ridin' on the boxcars boys they sure don't treat you right No more riding rails for me cause I'll be home tonight
I wrote mama in a letter by mail
That I would be home come high water or hell Got's to see papa cause he's leaving' soon He's going to God to sing the angel's tune
That's why I'mRidin' on the jitney train from Sanford to Lillington I been gone a long long time and I sure am missing home
But I'll be there my late tonight in these traveling shoes
When I get there I'll never leave got the Summervilla blues
