Promised Land - W.A.S.P.

words to study

[C. Berry cover]

Dig it I left my home in Norfolk Virginia

California on my mind

Straddled that Greyhound

Rode him in the Raleigh on across Caroline

We had motor trouble it turned into a struggle

Half way across Alabam

And that 'hound broke down and left us all stranded

In downtown Birmingham

Raleigh bought me a through train ticket

Ridin' cross Mississippi clean

I was on that midnight flyer out of Birmingham

Smokin' into New Orleans

Somebody help me get out of Louisiana

Just help me get to Houston town

There are people there who care a little 'bout me

And they won't let the poor boy down whoo

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