lyrics

As i was going o'er Arkansas
passed my family home, saw my ma and pa
waving one hand, moven me on
wavin one hand, son where you been gone?

Where have you been these five years past?
not one letter nor a passing fact
hard days have come, hard days will pass
and though we trust son, our luck's been bad

And while you wandered, found friends, made new
played your games as young men do
your family's suffered upon hard times
and your presence here, brings no sunshine

Take one step forward, not welcome now
keep a move on, we'll kill no fatted cow
waven' one hand moven' me on
waven' one hand lord where'd i go wrong
