Lyrics

come on feet
start movin'
got to get me there
ow

hey hey
uh huh huh huh huh
oh
uh huh huh
huh huh huh
yeah
oh

twenty-five miles
from home girl
my feet are hurtin'
mighty bad

now i been walkin'
for three days
and two lonely nights
you know
that i'm mighty mad

huh
but i got a woman
waitin' for me
that's gonna make
this trip worthwhile

you see she's got
the kind of lovin'
and a-kissin'
a-make a man
go stone-wild
so i got to keep on

walkin'
mm mm
huh
i got to walk on
woh hoh no
i'm so tired
but i just can't
lose my stride

i got fifteen miles
to go now
and i can hear my baby
callin' my name

it's as if as though
i'm standin' at her
front door
i can hear her
that doggone plain

now i'll be so glad
to see my baby
and hold her
in my arms
one more time

huh
now when
i kiss her lips
i'll turn
a back-over flip
and i'll forget about
these feet of mine
i got to keep on

walkin'
hey woo
i got to walk on
let me tell ya y'all
i'm so tired
huh
but i just can't
lose my stride

woo
come on feet
don't fail me now
i got
ten more miles to go

i got nine
eight
seven
six six six

i got
five more miles
to go now
over the hill
just around the bend

huh
although
my feet are tired
i can't lose my stride
i got to get to
my baby again
i got to keep on

walkin'
mm hmm
hey
i got to walk on

please
let me tell ya y'all
i'm so tired
huh
but i just can't
lose my stride

yeah
huh
i got to walk on
let me tell ya y'all
you see my baby
just-a won't come here

woh
hey hey now
i got to walk on
let me tell ya y'all
i've got to say
i been steppin'
since the sun came up
