"It's a long and a dusty road, it's a hot and a heavy load,
Some are bad, some are good, some have done the best they could,

I can't help but wonder where I'm bound.
Well, I've been around this land, just a-doin' the best I can,
And the faces that I see look as worried as can be,

I can't help but wonder where I'm bound.
Well, I had a little girl one time, she had lips like sherry wine
But I was too blind to see she was drifting away from me,

I can't help but wonder where I'm bound.
I had a buddy way back home, but he started out to roam,
And sometimes when I've had a few, his old voice comes singin' through,

I can't help but wonder where I'm bound..
If you see me passin' by and you sit and wonder why,
Nail your shoes to the kitchen floor, lace 'em up and bar the door,

I can't help but wonder where I'm bound."
