Lyrics

[Chorus:]
Well it's lonesome in this big town everybody puts me down
I'm a face without a name just a walkin' in the rain
I'm going back to Houston Houston Houston

[Verse 1:]
I got holes in both of my shoes and I'm a walkin' case of the blues
I saw a dollar yesterday but the wind blew it away
I'm going back to Houston Houston Houston
I haven't eaten in about a week and I'm so hugry when I walk I squeak
Nobody calls me friend it's sad the shape I'm in
I'm going back to Houston Houston Houston
I got a girl waitin' there for me where at least she said she'd be
I got a home and a big warm bed and a feather pillow for my head
I'm going back to Houston Houston Houston
I take a bus or take an old freight train
I come ride or walk it's all the same
I'm goin' back where they know my face and I'm never gonna leave that place
I'm going back to Houston Houston Houston

[Chorus:]
Well it's lonesome in this big town everybody puts me down
I'm a face without a name yeah I'm a walkin' in the rain
