OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Papa writes to Johnny, but Johnny can't come home
Johnny's been on that chain gang too long

Allemande that corner, turn the partner by the right
Allemande that corner, weave the ring
I laid around and played around this old town too long
Summers almost gone and winters coming on
I laid around and played around this old town too long
And now I feel like I gotta travel on


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples square thru 4 hands you go
Go around that corner and do a dosado
Swing thru and then, you spin the top my friend
Boys move up and a right & left thru
Square thru go 3, and that corner lady swing
Swing that lady around promenade the ring
I laid around and played around this old town too long
And now I feel like I gotta travel on


TAG

And now I feel like I gotta travel on

*Well the High Sheriff and the police are coming after me
Riding after me, yes they're coming after me


*Well I wanna see my honey, wanna see her bad
Cause she's the best girl this poor boy ever had

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.
