I been to mountains  Cutting timber down
All I do is dust to dawn 
Is follow that mule around 

I had no intentions 
Of staying away this long
I guess I won't be home 
 Until I'm dead and gone

Pick peaches down in Georgia  Cotton in Tennessee  Trying to make a living 
Is going to be the death of me

So if you want to find me
Just look where the wind has blown 
 Honey I won't be home
 Until I'm dead and gone

[Chorus]
Go find another fellow if you want to
I won't say you ever done me wrong 
This old heart is nothing to hold on to
 Honey I won't be home 
 Until I'm dead and gone

Up here in these tall pines 
 Leaning into the wind
 Doing my best to catch my breathe  Until I hit the road again 

Only thing I know to do 
Is keep rambling on
Yes I won't be home
 Until I'm deed and gone

[Chorus]

There's a great big shaped tree
 Shadowing a stone  Where I want you to lay me down
To rest my weary bones

 There ain't really no where else
In this world I belong  Guess I won't be home
 Until I'm dead and gone

[Chorus]

 Honey I won't be home
 Until I'm dead and gone
