  • Hey hey uh huh huh huh huh oh
    Uh huh huh huh huh huh yeah
    It's twenty five miles from home girl
    My feet are hurting mighty bad
    Now I've been walking a three day, two lonely nights
    You know that I'm mighty mad
    But I got a woman waiting for me
    That's gonna make this trip worthwhile
    You see she's got the kind of lovin' and a kissing
    A make a man go stone wild
    So I got to keep on walkin'
    I got to walk on, oh ho ho
    I, I, I, 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 calling my name
    It's as if as though I'm standing at her front door
    I can hear that doggone plain
    Now I'll be so glad to see my baby
    And hold her in my arms one more time
    Now when I kiss her lips
    I turn a back over flip and I'll forget these feet of mine
    I got to keep on walkin'
    I got to walk on oh ho ho
    I, I, I, I, I'm so tired but I just can't lose my stride
    Come on feet don't fail me now
    I got ten more miles to go
    I got nine, eight, seven, six
    I got a 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'
    I got to walk on
    I, I, I, I, I'm so tired but I just can't lose my stride, yeah
    I got to walk on, let me tell you y'all
    I see my baby just across the fence Writer/s: Bert Berns, Bert Russell, Edwin Starr, Gerald Wexler, Harvey Fuqua, Johnny William Bristol
