Come shake your hand, tell your papa goodbye

 

I’m going back to Tennessee

I’m going back to Memphis, Tennessee

I’m going where I never get bull-dozed

I’m going where I never get the bull-doze

I’m going where I never get bull-dozed

 

If you don’t believe I’m sinking

Look what a hole I’m in

If you don’t believe I’m sinking

Look what a hole I’m in

If you don’t believe I’m sinking

Look what a fool I’ve been

 

Oh, my babe, take me back

How in the world take me back
