  • Southbound again I don't know if I'm going or leaving home
    Boy got to be moving
    Seems like the boy is bound to roam
    Southbound again got no money I've got no place to go
    That woman's with her lover boy
    Never want to see her face no more
    Every single time I roll across the rolling River Tyne
    I get the same old feeling
    Every time I'm moving down the line
    Southbound again last night I felt like crying
    Right now I'm sick of living
    But I'm going to keep on trying. Writer/s: MARK KNOPFLER
