I was born by the railroad tracks 
Well the train whistle wailed and I wailed right back 
Well papa left mama when I was quite young 
He said now "One of these days you're gonna follow me son" 

[Chorus:]
Woh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh 
I ain't ever satisfied 
Woh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh 
I ain't ever satisfied 

Now I had me a woman she was my world 
But I ran off with my back street girl 
Now my back street woman could not be true 
She left me standin' on the boulevard thinkin' 'bout you 

I've got an empty feeling deep inside 
I'm going over to the other side 
Last night I dreamed I made it to the promise land 
I was standin' at the gate and I had the key in my hand 
Saint Peter said "Come on in boy, you're finally home" 
I said "No thanks Pete, I'll just be moving along"

[Chorus:]
