Headed south to work to pipeline
Make some cash while in the meantime
Baby jumped a bird and flew away

Lordy, Lordy, my, my mind's achin'
Drunk and down and out and makin' time
With anything that comes my way

Staggered to the Greyhound station
L.A. means my destination
Put me on that dog, take me away

Mobile blues baby, I can't make it
Got me down Lord, I can't take it
Here in Alabama for one more day

I called a friend in Frisco
He said baby's in L.A.
Here I am in Alabama two thousand miles away
Lord I got this mobile blues today

I left her back in Frisco, Lord
And she begged me not to go
I know somebody must have told her
That I travel and I lie

That they saw me drunk in mobile
With some wired up chick from Jacksonville
And brother did we look like we could fly

I staggered to the Greyhound station
L.A. means my destination
Put me on that dog, take me away
Lord I got this mobile blues today
Lord I got this mobile blues today
