Just about a year ago, I set out on the road
Seekin' my fame and fortune, lookin' for a pot of gold
 Things got bad, and things got worse, I guess you will
Know the tune
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again 

Rode in on the Greyhound, I'll be walkin' out if I go
I was just passin' through, must be seven months or more
Ran out of time and money, looks like they took my
 Friends 
Oh Lord, I'm stuck in Lodi again 

The man from the magazine said I was on my way
 Somewhere I lost connections, ran out of songs to play
I came into town, a one night stand, looks like my plans 
Fell through 
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again 

If I only had a dollar, for every song I've sung
And every time I've 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, I'm stuck in Lodi again
