Song Description

It just goes to show, there's no place like home.

Story Behind the Song

In this song, our hero can't seem to get anything to go right. At least he's got a place to scatter to so he can heal up !!!

Lyrics

LEONA, TEXAS



Honey, Honey, Honey, why you treat me so mean?
I been keepin? your kitchen all nice and clean
I done swept off the driveway and took out all the trash
I even been givin? you all my extra cash

But that ain?t good enough ? That still ain?t good enough
You give me the cold shoulder and arms and feet
Call me all them names I can?t repeat

I?m goin? back on down to Leona, Woman
Back on down to my Daddy?s farm
Can?t nobody hurt me no more down there
Can?t nobody do me no more harm

My Bossman got me jumpin? & fetchin? like a slave
He?s gonna dock me all my money ?cause he says I misbehave
I?m steady bent over workin? until the sun goes down
From whistle to whistle I don?t even make a sound
But that ain?t good enough ? That still ain?t good enough
He done threatened to fire me and cancel my parole
Said he won?t stop tellin? ?till everybody?s told

I?m goin? back on down to Leona, Man
Back on down to my Daddy?s farm
Can?t nobody hurt me no more down there
Can?t nobody do me no more harm

The Police done stopped me while I was drivin? round
Told me I ain?t got no business in his damn town
He demanded my license and my insurance card
I tried to be respectful ? Lord, I tried real hard

But that wasn?t good enough ? That still wasn?t good enough
He put me in handcuffs and threw me in his car
Said I?d have to pay the price for pushin? him too far

I?m goin? back on down to Leona, Ya?ll
Back on down to my Daddy?s farm
Can?t nobody hurt me no more down there
Can?t nobody do me no more harm
