Leaving, going back down the line
Leaving, going back down the line
You don't treat me right, baby
Going to Tennessee
Tennessee, here I come
Tennessee, that's my home, going back
I'm cutting out, cutting out, baby, cutting out
This morning, baby, oh yeah
Going home, cutting out, oh yeah

Now, baby, you give me a normal line of jive
You told me you'll always be my friend
I brought you here, now baby, you done me wrong
I'm leaving, leaving
I'm going back down the line, down the line
Oh yes, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm
When you say, goodbye
When you say, goodbye
Oh baby
