Promised Land
I left my home in Norfolk Virginia
California on my mind
Straddled that greyhound, rode him into Raleigh
On across Caroline

Stopped in Charlotte and bypassed rock hill
And we never was a minute late
We was ninety miles out of Atlanta by sundown
Rollin' out of the Georgia state

We had motor trouble it turned into a struggle
Half way 'cross Alabama
And that 'hound broke down and left us all stranded
In downtown Birmingham

Somebody help me get out of Louisiana
Help me get to Houston Town
My uncle's there who care a little 'bout me
And he won't let the poor boy down

Swing low chariot, come down easy
Taxi to the terminal zone
Cut your engines and cool your wings
And let me make it to the telephone

Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia
Tidewater four ten o nine
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land callin'
And the poor boy's on the line
