North Cumberland Blues

This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker and appears on the album Driftin' Way Of Life (1969).

Throwing rods down from North Cumberland
Left my gal that I love way back there
But I'll be back some old day yes I will
I'll be back some old day
How bout another round

Went to Texas to build me up a home
Told my gal I was going to make it there on my own
But I'll be back some old day yes I will
I'll be back some old day
Let's have another round

California next, I went on a freight
Figured here boys I would finally have it made
But I'll be back some old day...

Fast fine women living high got my bread
Expensive wine, I lost my time, I lost my head
But I'll be back some old day...

Got a letter up in Portland, Oregon and it read
After 6 years, Jeff we're finally wed
But I'll be back some old day...

With my gal gone, I guess I'll ramble on
Looking for whatever it is that I want
But I'll be back some old day...
