I'm looking for the lyrics to a Johnny McEvoy song. I Don't know the title, but is a line from the song. There's no need for locks on this old cardboard box.

John McEvoy

I've walked the soles off my feet on these dark London streets
In search for a room and a bed,
And my heart grows so weary, with these nights cold and dreary,
All I want is to lay down my head.

CHORUS: I can see by your face that you're leaving this place,
And you're taking the overnight train.
If you should meet my mother, will you tell her I love her
And I'll write just as soon as I can?

Six months in this city, God knows there's no pity
When you haven't a bob of your own,
And there's no need for locks on this old cardboard box
Even though it's a place I call home. CHORUS

Outside Paddington Station, my heart it is breaking,
And I can't tell my tears from the rain,
And the jingle and jangle of the damned old triangle
Keeps ringing around in my brain. CHORUS

[Sung by Johnny McEvoy on his album "Celebration," and by Kevin Collins on his album "Hills of Home."]
