Country men, friends, lend me your ears,
I'll tell you a tale of fifteen years
I'm an old man and so far along, I wanna see the city where I was born
I got the feelin' I can't stand, gotta get home to my homeland
Ain't got no money, I ain't got a cent,

Come on, come on, come on
So come on people, gotta get movin', can't stop now, I gotta keep movin'
Show me, show me the way, show me, show me the way
Show me, show me the way, (you gotta show me) show me, show me the way
(You gotta show me), show me, (the way) show me the way
(You gotta show me), show me, (the way) show me the way
(I gotta get) show me (I gotta get) show me the way
(I gotta get) show me (I gotta get) show me the way
(I've come a long way) show me the way to St. Louis (I've com
