Album: Angry Young Man


I was born by the railroad track
Well the train whistled, wailed and I wailed right back
Well papa left mama when I was quite young,
Said "now one of these days you're going to follow me son."

Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.
Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.

Now I had me a woman, she was me girl
Then, well I ran off with a back street girl
Now my back street woman could not be true,
She left me standing on the boulevard thinking 'bout you.

Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.
Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.

(bridge)
I got an empty feeling deep inside
I'm going over to the other side.

(instrumental)

Last night I dreamed I made it to the promised land
    (I ain't ever satisfied)
I was standing at the gate and had the key in my hand
    (I ain't ever satisfied)
Saint Peter said "Come in, boy, you're finally home"
    (I ain't ever satisfied)
I said "No thanks, Peter, I'll just move it along."
    (I ain't ever satisfied)

Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.
Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.

Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.
Whoah........ I ain't ever satisfied.
