HOW CAN YOU KEEP ON MOVING (UNLESS YOU MIGRATE TOO?)
(Agnes Cunningham)

(C) - (F) - (G)
(C) How can you keep on moving un- (F) less you migrate (C) too?
They tell ya to keep on moving but (G) migrate, you must not do.
The (C) only reason for moving and the (F) reason why I (C) roam:
To move to a new lo- (G) cation and find myself a (C) home.

I can't go back to the homestead. The shack no longer stands.
They said I was uneeded, had no claim to the land.
They said, "Come on, get moving. It's the only thing for you."
But how can you keep moving unless you migrate too?

Now if you pitch your little tent along the broad highway,
The Board of Sanitation says, "Sorry, you can't stay.
Come on, come on. Get moving." It's their everlasting cry.
Can't stay, can't go back, can't migrate, so where the hell am I?

How can you keep on moving unless you migrate too?
They tell ya to keep on moving but migrate, you must not do.
The only reason for moving and the reason why I roam:
To move to a new location and find myself a home.
