"Rollin' Stone" as written by and Irving Gordon....
Come home rollin' stone,
Home where you belong ( belong, Oh! come . . . )
Oh! come home rollin' stone,
You've been away too long!

I wandered into Kansas a-singin' a song
Singin' doodle-doo-day, all day!
And then I got a feelin' that somethin' was wrong
When a voice in my heart seemed to say . . .

Come home rollin' stone,
Home where you belong, belong,
Oh! come home rollin' stone,
You've been away too long!

I left my love a-weepin' in old Arkansas
Left her for the freight cars that passed
But last night in a tavern, I swear that I saw
Her face in a shimmering glass . . .

( Come home rollin' stone,
Home where you belong, belong,
Oh! come home rollin' stone,
You've been away too long . . . )

Now, when I hear that lonesome old train comin' near
And the moon is over the track
Oh somewhere from the shadows I know that I'll hear
Her voice in the clickity clack!

Oh come home rollin' stone,
Home where you belong, belong,
Oh! come home rollin' stone,
You've been away too long . . . ( Come home . . . )
