The Lyrics…

Stuck on you

I’ve got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can’t lose

Guess I’m on my way

Needed a friend

And the way I feel, now I guess I’ll be with you ’til the end

Guess I’m on my way

Mighty glad you stayed

I’m stuck on you

Been a fool too long I guess it’s time for me to come on home

Guess I’m on my way

So hard to see

That a woman like you could wait around for a man like me

Guess I’m on my way

Mighty glad you stayed

Oh, I’m leaving on that midnight train tomorrow

And I know just where I’m going

I’ve packed up my troubles, and I’ve thrown them all away

‘Cause this little time, darling

I’m coming home to stay

I’m stuck on you

I’ve got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can’t lose

Guess I’m on my way

Needed a friend

And the way I feel, now I guess I’ll be with you ’til the end

Guess I’m on my way

I’m mighty glad you stayed
