​Lodi

This song is by Tom Jones and appears on the album I Who Have Nothing (1970) and on the album The Definitive Tom Jones 1964-2002 (2003).

Just about a year ago
I set out on the road
Seekin' my fame and fortune
And looking for a pot of gold
Things got bad, and Things got worse
I Guess you know the tune
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again

I rode in on a grey hound
I'll be walking out if I go
I was just passing through
Must be seven months or more
Ran out of time and money
Looks like they took my friends
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again

The man from the magazine
Said I was on my way
Somewhere I lost connection
Ran out of songs to play
Came in to town on a one night stand
Looks like my plans fell through
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again

-Short BRIDGE-

If I only had a dollar
For every song I sung
And every-time I had to play
While people sat there drunk
You know I'd catch the next train
Back to where I live
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again
(Music fading to end)
