I'll be alright in the morning
When I get myself back home
I been gone such a long long time
Gettin' weary bein' on my own

I just got to get myself back home
Back to the place I know I once belonged

Well I been workin', I'm a river man
Drivin' down the mighty river bed
An' after thirty-six days on a ? ? barge
You know a body gets in need of a friend

I just got to get myself back home
Back to the place I know I once belonged

My body's achin' and the sun's on my back
And the captain's really bringing me down
My woman, she wrote, said she needs me tonight
And I'm hopin' we won't be long

Well I just got to get myself back home, back home
You know I got to get back to the place I once belonged

Hey I've got to get back
I just got to get myself back home
Back to the place I know I once belonged
I know I once belonged
I just got to get myself back home
I wanna get home
Back to the place I know I once belonged
