Southbound again I don't know if I'm going or leaving home
Boy got to be moving
Seems like the boy is bound to roam
Southbound again got no money I've got no place to go
That woman's with her lover boy
Never want to see her face no more
Every single time I roll across the rolling River Tyne
I get the same old feeling
Every time I'm moving down the line
Southbound again last night I felt like crying
Right now I'm sick of living
But I'm going to keep on trying.

    General CommentAgree. This song is autobiographical rather than observational for Knopfler.
    Another good thing is that you know when this song ends that you will hear the classic "Sultans of Swing".

    General CommentIt's obviously about a Geordie who works in the south of England
