Sail on down the line 'bout-a half-a mile or so,
Maybe once or twice, you see, time after time
and I don't mind about the things you're gonna say, Lord,
I know it's a shame, but I'm givin' you back your name, yeah, yeah.
I guess I'll move along, I'm lookin' for a good time.
Sail on down the line, ain't it funny how the time can go on-a
It was plain to see that a small town boy like me
It was wishful thinkin'.
and you gave me nothin' in return.
I've thrown away the blues, I'm tired of bein' used.

and you gave me nothin' in return.
Got nothin' else to lose, I'm tired of bein' used,
whoa, oh, sail on honey, good times never felt so good.
