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
