Who's Afraid of Thomas Wolfe?

This song is by Josh Joplin Group and appears on the 2001 reissue of the album Useful Music (1999).

I changed my name, I had it made
I sold my soul
And I never got paid

When it's one long line after another
And you can't get a green card
And all you want is to lie with your lover
But distance makes it too hard
What you don't know is
You can never go back, never go back
You can never go home again

And it's one headache after another
And you can't get a green light
And all you want is to lie with your lover
And make everything all right
What you don't know is
You can never go back, never go back
You can never go home again

And I'm going home despite
That Thomas Wolfe was right
I'm going home despite
That Thomas Wolfe was right

I dreamed I jumped
I spoke to God
I overslept
And I got fired from my job
