"Gotta Travel On" as written by and Larry Ehrlich Paul Clayton....
Done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I've got to travel on
And it seems like I've got to travel on

Papa writes to Johnny, Johnny can't come home
Johnny can't come home, Johnny can't come home
Papa writes to Johnny, Johnny can't come home
Johnny's been out on the road too long
So I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I've got to travel on

That chilly wind will soon begin and I'll be on my way
Going home to stay, going home to stay
That chilly wind will soon begin and I'll be on my way
And I feel like I just want to travel on
So I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Oh yes I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I've got to travel on

There's a lonesome freight at 6:08 coming through the town
I'll be homeward bound, I'll be homeward bound
There's a lonesome freight at 6:08 coming on through the town
And I feel like I just want to travel on
Well I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Yes it is done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I almost travel on
