    Lyrics

    I left New York in 1949
    To go across the country without a bad blame dime
    Montana in the cold cold fall
    Found my father in the gambling hall

    Father, Father where you been?
    I've been out in the world and I'm only ten
    Father, Father where you been?
    I've been out in the world and I'm only ten

    Don't worry about me if I should die of pleurisy

    Across to Mississippi, across to Tennessee
    Across the Niagara, home I'll never be
    Home in ol' Medora, home in Ol' Truckee
    Apalachicola, home I'll never be

    Better or for worse, thick and thin
    Like being married to the Little poor man
    God he loves me (God he loves me)
    Just like I love him (just like I love him)
    I want you to do (I want you to do)
    Just the same for him (just the same for him, yeah)

    Well the worms eat away but don't worry watch the wind
    So I left Montana on an old freight train (on an old freight train)
    The night my father died in the cold cold rain (in the cold cold rain)

    Road to Opelousas, road to Wounded Knee
    Road to Ogallala home I'll never be
    Road to Oklahoma, road to El Cahon
    Road to Tahachapi, road to San Antone

    Hey, hey

    Road to Opelousas, road to Wounded Knee
    Road to Ogallala, home I'll never be
    Road to Oklahoma, road to El Cahon
    Road to Tahachapi, road to San Antone

    Home I'll never be, home I'll never be
    Home I'll never be, home I'll never be
    Home I'll never be, home I'll never be
