The Sliding Delta run right by my door
Sliding Delta run right by my door

I'm going up the country, and baby don't you wanna go
I'm going up the country, baby don't you wanna go

I'm going up the country, I ain't coming back no more
I'm going up the country, and I ain't coming back no more

The big Kate Allen, got ways just like a man
It'll steal your baby every time she lands

I said, "The big Kate Allen, got ways just like a man
Steal your baby every time she lands"

The Sliding Delta run right by my door
Sliding Delta run right by my door

My suitcase is packed, and my trunk's already gone
I can't sleep baby when the world is waitin' on

I said, I'm going up the country, don't you wanna go
Going up the country, and I ain't coming back na more
