Lyrics of Promised Land

I left my home in Norfolk
Virginia California on my mind
Straddled that greyhound rode him in Raleigh on across Caroline
Stopped in Charlotte and bypassed rock hill
We never was a minute late
We were ninety miles out of Atlanta by sundown rollin' 'cross the Georgia state
We had a motor trouble it turned into a struggle half way 'cross Alabam'
And that 'hound broke down and left us all stranded in downtown Birmingham
Right away I bought me a two train ticket ridin' 'cross Mississippi queen
And I was on that midnight flier out of Birmingham smoking 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
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 over riley flying over toward the Golden Gate
Oh when the pilot told us in thirteen minutes he would get us to the terminal gate
Swing low chariot come down easy taxi to the terminal zone
Cut your engines and 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
