I am a lone, wayfaring stranger
Traveling through this town of woe
There are no sins, no fear of danger
In that bright land to which I go
I'm going home to see my father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only goin' over the same street
I'm only goin' over home

I know dark clouds will gather around me
I know my way is rough and steep
Beautiful fields lie just beyond me
Souls redeemed on this old street
I'm going there to meet my mother
She said she'd meet me, oh, when I come
I'm only goin' over the same street
I'm only goin' over home

You know my lady, yeah, she would leave me
But she can't, she's hooked on me
Oh my lady, yeah, I would love her
But I can't, I've got my needs
I'm going home to see my baby
It won't be long and I'll be there
I'm only goin' over the same street
I'm only goin' over home
