OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I stayed around and played around in this old town too long
Summer's almost gone and winter's coming on

Allemande your corner now, you turn the partner by the right
Four men star by the left one time tonight
Turn your partner by the right hand and the corner allemande
Come on back and promenade and go dancin' around the land
I've stayed around and played around this old town too long
And I feel like I've got to travel on


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and then you count four hands around you go
To the corners all swing thru and just for fun
Boys run to the right and do a ferris wheel
In the center pass thru and touch 1/4, scoot back
The boys fold and then the girls turn thru
Swing the corner around and promenade them two by two
I stayed around and played around in this old town too long
And I feel like I've got to travel on


TAG

Yes I feel like I've got to travel on

Gotta Travel On
 
 

Done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I've got to travel on
And it seems like I've got to travel on

Papa writes to Johnny, Johnny can't come home
Johnny can't come home, Johnny can't come home
Papa writes to Johnny, Johnny can't come home
Johnny's been out on the road too long
So I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I've got to travel on

That chilly wind will soon begin and I'll be on my way
Going home to stay, going home to stay
That chilly wind will soon begin and I'll be on my way
And I feel like I just want to travel on
So I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Oh yes I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I've got to travel on

Wanna see my honey, wanna see her bad
Wanna see her bad, oh, wanna see her bad
Wanns see my honey, wanna see her bad
She's the best gal this poor boy's ever had
So I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Oh yes I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I've got to travel on

There's a lonesome freight at 6:08 coming through the town
I'll be homeward bound, I'll be homeward bound
There's a lonesome freight at 6:08 coming on through the town
And I feel like I just want to travel on
Well I done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
Summer's almost gone, winter's coming on
Yes it is done laid around, done stayed around this old town too long
And it seems like I almost travel on

Lyrics by Paul Clayton, Larry Erlich, David Lazar & Tom Six.
Recorded by The Kingston Trio; Jimmy Dean (1962); Bob Dylan.
