Another day has come and gone,
and I can’t figure what went wrong.
Mockingbird, is a-mockin’ me
She locked me out and lost the key

And I’ve gone wanderin again I’m out the door
I’m walking by myself, down the street, like the night before
And I should be home in bed, but the notion in my head is
Telling me to ramble on…

Every day is just a dream:
Stuck inside the Great Machine
You work your job, spend your pay
And no one hears the prayers you pray

And I’ve gone wanderin’ again I’m out the door
I’m walking by myself, down the street, like the night before
And I should be home in bed, but the notion in my head is
Telling me to ramble on…

I’ve seen the sun, I’ve felt the rain
Busted loose my ball and chain
Seen the Man and what I see:
He’s just like you, He’s just like me

    General CommentNo comments! No comments on any Jackie songs!? Really goes to show what type of other junk people listen to nowdays.

    Gone Wonderin' is one of my favorite Jackie songs. The lyrics are stunning, simply great, very truthful.
