Manfred Mann’s Earth Band - Davy’s on the road again
Tekst en muziek: John Simon en Jaime Robbie Robertson
(1978)






Davy’s on the road again
Wearing different clothes again
Davy’s turning handouts down
To keep the pockets clean



All his goods are sold again
His world is good as gold again
Says: “If you see Jean now
Ask her, please, to pity me”



Jean and I, we moved along
Since the day, down in the hollow
When the mind went driftin’ on
And the feet were soon to follow



Davy’s on the road again
Wearing different clothes again
Davy’s turning handouts down
To keep the pockets clean



Sayin’ his goodbyes again
Wheels are in his eyes again
Says: “If you see Jean now
Ask her, please, to pity me”



Downtown in the big town
Gonna set you back on your heels
With a mouth full of memories
And a lot of stickers for my windshield



Shut the door, cut the light
Davy won’t be home tonight
You can wait till the dawn rolls in
You won’t see your Davy again



Davy’s on the road again
Davy’s on the road again



Davy’s on the road again
Wearing different clothes again
Davy’s turning handouts down
To keep the pockets clean



All his goods are sold again
His world is good as gold again
Says: “If you see Jean now
Ask her, please, to pity me”



Jean and I, we moved along
Since the day, down in the hollow
When the mind went driftin’ on
And the feet were soon to follow



Davy’s on the road again
Wearing different clothes again
Davy’s turning handouts down
To keep the pockets clean



Sayin’ his goodbyes again
Wheels are in his eyes again
