TO MORROW (trad.)

I started on a journey, about a year ago
To a little town called Morrow in the state of Ohio
I've never been much of a traveller, so I really didn't know
That Morrow was the hardest place I'd ever try to go!

I went down to the station for my ticket and applied
For tips regarding Morrow not expecting to be guyed (means fooled)
Said he to me, "Now let me see if I have heard you right--
You'd like to go to Morrow and return tomorrow night"

"You should have gone to Morrow yesterday and back today
For the train today to Morrow is a mile upon its way...
If you had gone to Morrow yesterday now don't you see
you could have gone to Morrow and returned today at three."

"For the train today to Morrow if the schedule is right
Today it goes to Morrow and returns tomorrow night"
I was so disappointed I was mad enough to swear
The train had gone to Morrow and it left me standing there

The man was right in tellin' me that I was howlin' jay
I could not go to Morrow, so I guess in town I'll stay
