I’m Movin’ On

I’m Movin’ On

(Ken Carson)

Well I worked all night in a gambling hall for a dollar-seventy-five
The music was hot and the wine was fine, I was glad to be alive
When all the sudden the lights went out and everybody began to shout
Look out!
I’m movin’ on

Chorus:
I’m movin, movin’ movin’, movin’ on
I’m on my way, I just can’t stay, I’m movin’ on
I’ve had my fun but now it’s done,
I’m movin’ on

Well I courted a gal in New Orleans and another in Houston town
We vowed there was never a love like ours and agreed to settle down
Then the one from New Orleans came in and the battle right there it did begin
Look out!
I’m movin’ on

Chorus:
I’m movin, movin’ movin’, movin’ on
I’m on my way, I just can’t stay, I’m movin’ on
I’ve had my fun but now it’s done,
I’m movin’ on

I was at the tables in a border town and the game was going fine
I’d made ten passes in a row so I laid it all on the line
Then the slight of hand came into view, and I said It’s either me or you
And I got him!
I’m movin’ on

Chorus:
I’m movin, movin’ movin’, movin’ on
I’m on my way, I just can’t stay, I’m movin’ on
I’ve had my fun but now it’s done,
I’m movin’ on
