Beat It On Down The Line

Lyrics By: Jesse Fuller
Music By: Jesse Fuller
<p>
Well this job I've got is just a little too hard,<br>
Running out of money, Lord, I need more pay.<br>
Gonna wake up in the morning Lord, gonna pack my bags,<br>
I'm gonna beat it on down the line.
</p>
<p>
I'm goin' down the line, goin down the line,<br>
Goin' down the line, goin down the line,<br>
Goin' down the line, goin down the line,<br>
Beat it on down the line.
</p>
<p>
Yes I'll be waiting at the station Lord, when that train pulls on by,<br>
I'm going back where I belong.<br>
I'm going back to that same old used-to-be,<br>
Down in Joe Brown's coal mine.
</p>
<p>
Coal mine, coal mine, coal mine, coal mine.<br>
Coal mine, coal mine, coal mine, coal mine.<br>
Coal mine, coal mine, coal mine, coal mine.<br>
Down in Joe Brown's coal mine.
</p>
<p>
Yeah, I'm goin' back to that shack way across that railroad track,<br>
Uh huh, that's where I think I belong.<br>
Got a sweet woman, Lord, and she's waiting there for me<br>
And that's where I'm gonna make my happy home.
</p>
<p>
Happy home, happy home, happy home, happy home.<br>
Happy home, happy home, happy home, happy home.<br>
Happy home, happy home, happy home, happy home.<br>
That's where I'm gonna make my happy home.
</p>

Sung by Bob Weir with the Grateful Dead from the 1960s through to the 1990s.
