Walked 119 miles
Looking for a place to call my home
Even asked the preacher
He said, “Son, you gotta move along.”
I’m an unwanted man
Ain’t got no place to call my home
It’s a desperate life I’m living
And I’m so tired of being alone

Went to my mama’s house
To get a little bite to eat
She said, “You must be joking, son”
And put me back on the street
I’m an unwanted man
Ain’t got no place to call my home
It’s a desperate life I’m living
And I’m so tired of being along

I asked all my friends
Where the hell did I go wrong
I don’t get an answer
They won’t talk to me that long
I’m an unwanted man
Ain’t got no place to call my home
It’s a desperate life I’m living
And I’m so tired of being along
