Travelin' Woman Blues

CHORUS:
Lord I'm tired,
but I won't quit;
I know the way,
and this is it:
HIV
Martin Luther
Morse code
Birds' nest
Five-and-dime
Adam & Eve
Back to school
Fair trade
Jamie Mac
Criss-cross
Ride that horse
Kay to 'ell
Moonlight in Vermont
Oh say do you
believe in
Magic bears in t-shirts
Bottle blondes
Sunflowers
Allemande
Left & push
9 for the
Promised Land.
{{{deep breath}}}
I had to choose
I got them Travelin' Woman Blues

Verse 1:
Won't you come closer, there's no air,
So little room from here to there;
The coats and gloves are all the same,
In uniform to play the game.
(march, march)
Verse 2:
Don't look, don't talk, don't turn around,
And when they ask, don't make a sound;
Just stand in line and move on through,
We've all got better things to do.
(right, right)
CHORUS:
Lord I'm tired, etc.
.....know the way.....
(don't forget)
CHORUS:
.....had to choose
.....got them Travelin' Woman Blues
(one more time)              
[oh no, not again]
