I've got a friend said that she'd invite me.


   A
I came here in the morning,

And I crept out in the middle of the night.
                                   
I gave nobody warning I was leaving,
                      
And felt it was right.
        H
Now I'm off again,
        E                 A
And it sure is feeling alright.

       A
Got a feeling that I'm leaving

with a ticket and I won't jump a ride

It's no good you believing

that my leaving was a-wrong, it was right
        H
Now I'm off again,
        E                 A
And it sure is feeling alright.

I can't afford a ticket on an old Dakota airplane,

I gotta jump a ride on a cattle trucking slow train.
    H
I guess it doesn't matter,
    E                                     A
As long as I can get my head down in the sun.

    A  
I wrote a rocking song, gonna sing it at the station,

I'll finish all the words when I reach my destination.
   H                    
I guess it doesn't matter,
    E
As long as I can get my head down in the sun.
