Dinah, you fortress of loneliness, begging you
If I'm not tired and you're not pretty, God have mercy, I'm dying here
Who wouldn't want you blowing that horn all day?
But I just want you blowing away

Dinah, forsaken soul, my heart don't know yours anymore
Ten and counting and on your heels and crying out, "Marry me, love me for real."
Your somber smoke is something sweet
But I don't want it here 'round me

I will hold tight, that's all
Until I find paradise, that's right
I've come a long, long way just to see you Adelaide
And it's a long, long way back home
I will hold tight, that's all

What's my hand dear, to hold, to have, if it won't hold you back?
If I am careless and you are free, then why provide the cuff and the creed?
Thought you'd said I had caught your eye
But all I'm catching are callous nights

Well that noon train's rolling nigh, that's all
And I won't be at his mercy, that's right
I've come a long, long way just to see you Adelaide
And it's a long, long way back home
I will hold tight, that's all
