Canned Heat - On the Road again

On the Road again

"On the Road Again" is a song recorded by the American blues-rock group Canned Heat in 1967.

A driving blues-rock boogie, it was adapted from earlier blues songs and includes mid-1960s psychedelic rock elements.
Unlike most of Canned Heat's songs from the period, second guitarist and harmonica player Alan Wilson provides the distinctive falsetto vocal. "On the Road Again" first appeared on their second album, Boogie with Canned Heat, in January 1968; when an edited version was released as a single in April 1968, "On the Road Again" became Canned Heat's first record chart hit and one of their best-known songs.

Lyrics

Well, I'm so tired of crying. But I'm out on the road again. I'm on the road again. Well, I'm so tired of crying. But I'm out on the road again. I'm on the road again. I ain't got no woman. Just to call my special friend.

You know the first time I traveled. Out in the rain and snow. In the rain and snow. You know the first time I traveled. Out in the rain and snow. In the rain and snow. I didn't have no payroll. Not even no place to go.

And my dear mother left me. When I was quite young. When I was quite young. And my dear mother left me. When I was quite young. When I was quite young. She said "Lord, have mercy. On my wicked son.".

Take a hint from me, mama. Please don't you cry no more. Don't you cry no more. Take a hint from me, mama. Please don't you cry no more. Don't you cry no more. 'Cause it's soon one morning, Down the road I'm going.

But I ain't going down. That long old lonesome road. All by myself. But I ain't going down. That long old lonesome road. All by myself. I can't carry you, baby. Gonna carry somebody else.
