Can't get away from here, child
Can't get her back I know
You've got so much time, I tell you
Carry a heavy load
You don't know what [helping] will need
You don't know what can be for me, yeah
I've carried up my [pail], can't get [?] way
You've done something, tell me child
I'm hoping you can stay
Carry me back
Carry me back

You don't try to tell
You don't try, I'm telling you
You got nothing, nothing baby
What I'm gonna give you
[?] turn on me
When I'm trying to tell you
I can't get back, baby, no more
Come on, come on, yeah, yeah
Come on back now
Come on back girl
Come on back child
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I can't give away
I can't give away nothing else, baby
Sure don't know what you're giving me
I don't know now baby

Come on down to the railroad track
Get youself a-grooving
If your [?] all right
They don't mind you grooving
