Portland, Maine is just the same as sunny Tennessee

Portland, Maine is just the same as sunny Tennessee
    D                                             G
Any old place I hang my hat is home sweet home to me

Oldlayhee olayhee O-heolayhee  Hey, hey, hey


I went to the depot and I looked up on the board
I went to the depot and I looked up on the board
It read it's good times here, but better on down the road

Yodel

I'll eat my breakfast here, get my dinner in New Orleans
Get my breakfast here, get my dinner in New Orleans
I'm going to get me a momma, Lord, I ain't never seen

Yodel

Where was you momma, when the train left the shed, yeah buddy
Where was you momma, when the train left the shed
Standin' in my front door, wishin' to God, I was dead

Yodel

If your house catcha fire, there ain't no one around, sing them blues boys
If your house catcha fire, there ain't no one around
Just put my son out the window, let the house burn all down

Yodel

If that's your momma, you'd better tie her to your side
If that's your momma, you'd better tie her to your side
Cause if she flash my train, I'll sure let her ride

Yodel
