"On My Way"

Well, sometimes I am happy, sometimes sad
Thinkin' of the good times I have had
Thinkin' of the places I have been --
Sometimes down, sometimes up, sometimes in

On my way -- to another workin' day
On my way -- and I wish that I could stay
On my way -- but I have no time to play
And I hope that I will see you on my way

And I got me a job in Buffalo
And it's cold when those chilly lake winds blow
And it's hot when that steel furnace glows;
It was dirty when that steel smoke rose

On my way -- to another workin' day
On my way -- and I wish that I could stay
On my way -- but I have no time to play
And I hope that I will see you on my way

Then California called me for a while
And the sun was shinin' every single mile
It was gettin' so darned crowded I could cry
Crossin' land and sea and fallin' from the sky

On my way -- to another workin' day
On my way -- and I wish that I could stay
On my way -- but I have no time to play
And I hope that I will see you on my way

And I've been all along the Southern shore
And the people there were lookin' mighty poor
They were waitin' for the factories to arrive
And some of them were fightin' to survive

On my way -- to another workin' day
On my way -- and I wish that I could stay
On my way -- but I have no time to play
And I hope that I will see you on my way

Yes, I've been all up and down the line
But somehow my money stayed behind
A good payin' job is hard to find
And the graveyard's lookin' for another sign

On my way -- to another workin' day
On my way -- and I wish that I could stay
On my way -- but I have no time to play
And I hope that I will see you on my way
