From the recording Return to Americana

Lyrics

Written by: Mark Brine

I ain’t stickin’ ‘round New OrleansI’m coming back home Tennessee Where my darlin’ gal’s in a mountain homePatiently waitin’ on me

Chorus:I’m gonna move my shows and outrun them bluesBack to my Tennessee home (2. state)...I'm ...Tired of the rounds and workin’ the grounds(2. Headed ‘fore it gets too late)I’m tired of being alone

I ain’t gonna stop off in Memphis There’s too much of a risk involved That momma, she’s waitin’ out on them front stairsWith a bottle of cheap alcohol

No plans of coming backI’m leavin’ this city on a railroad trackI miss the old gang and thesongs that we sangI ain’t even waiting to pack©1977 Dream City Music (BMI)
