Promised Land Lyrics

Promised Land - Chuck Berry (查克·贝里)

I left my home in norfolk virginia

California on my mind

 

Straddled that greyhound rode him past raleigh

On across caroline

 

Stopped in charlotte and bypassed rock hill

And we never was a minute late

 

We was ninety miles out of atlanta by sundown

Rollin' 'cross the georgia state

 

We had motor trouble it turned into a struggle

Half way 'cross alabam

 

And that 'hound broke down and left us all stranded

In downtown birmingham

 

Straight off i bought me a through train ticket

Ridin' cross mississippi clean

 

And i was on that midnight flyer out of birmingham

Smoking into new orleans

 

Somebody help me get out of louisiana

Just help me get to houston town

 

There's people there who care a little 'bout me

And they won't let the poor boy down

 

Sure as you're born they bought me a silk suit

Put luggage in my hands

 

And i woke up high over albuquerque

On a jet to the promised land

 

Workin' on a t-bone steak a la carte

Flying over to the golden state

 

The pilot told me in thirteen minutes

We'd be headin' in the terminal gate

 

Swing low sweet chariot come down easy

Taxi to the terminal zone

 

Cut your engines cool your wings

And let me make it to the telephone

 

Los angeles give me norfolk virginia

Tidewater four ten o nine

 

Tell the folks back home this is the promised land callin'

And the poor boy's on the line
