Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Home to the loved ones you left far away
Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Lonely hitchhiker hike home

He left in Kentucky the mountains, his children and wife
For a job in the new promised land
There's work in the oil rigs just south of New Orleans
So save every dollar you can

Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Home to the loved ones you left far away
Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Lonely hitchhiker hike home

It's dirty and cold and the hours go slow
As he waits for a letter to brighten his day
And sends his reply that the postman delivers
"Hey kids did you grow much today?"

Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Home to the loved ones you left far away
Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Lonely hitchhiker hike home

I gave him a lift to the interstate junction
He told me his story I told him my own
He offered me money
I just shook his hand and said
Lonely hitchhiker hike home

Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Home to the loved ones you left far away
Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Lonely hitchhiker hike home

Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Home to the loved ones you left far away
Hitchhiker hike home to your wife and your family
Lonely hitchhiker hike home
