Done Laid Around

  • (Trad)

    Chorus:
    Done laid around and stayed around this old town too long
    Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
    Done laid around, played around this old town too long
    I'm sad that I've got to travel on

    There's a lonesome freight at 6:08 coming into town
    Coming into town, I'll be homeward bound
    There's a lonesome freight at 6:08 coming into town
    I'm sad that I've got to travel on

    The chilly winds will soon begin, I'll be on my way
    I'll be on my way, goin' home some day
    The chilly wind will soon begin, I'll be on my way
    It's sad I've got to travel on

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1961:] Pete Seeger says: "[This] I first learned from Larry Ehrlich of Chicago, who learned it from Paul Clayton, who learned it from Arthur Kyle Davis of the Univ. of Va., who got it from a small booklet, published by a now deceased French professor. His original sources, Negro folksingers of Virginia, were not listed.

    There may have been other verses, but Paul Clayton did not know them. Larry Ehrlich and others in Chicago there made up a couple more. And the Weavers added a few. The Weavers have just recorded it on a 78 rpm single for Vanguard." (Reprint Sing Out 3, 137)
