No Vacancy

作詞:Merle Travis / Cliffie Stone    作曲:Merle Travis / Cliffie Stone

All along the road of life I roam
Lookin' for a place to call my own
Not a fancy mansion or a bungalow for me
Everywhere I go I seem to find
Hangin' out the door that same old sign
My heart beats slower when I read on a door, no vacancy

No vacancy, no vacancy
All along the line the same old sign awaitin' for me
No vacancy, no vacancy
My heart beats slower when I read on a door, no vacancy


Not so long ago it seemed
Many a happy dream I dreamed
Of a little nest where I could rest and the world was free
Now the mighty war is over and won
Trouble and trials just begun
I face that terrible enemy, no vacancy

No vacancy, no vacancy
All along the line the same old sign awaitin' for me
No vacancy, no vacancy
My heart beats slower when I read on a door, no vacancy


Brother if you're livin' a life of ease
You'd better take a moment on your knees
Thank the Lord above for all he's done for you
Livin' in a world of grief and hate
Hopin' every day that the hand of fate
Will remove that sign on the door, no vacancy

No vacancy, no vacancy
All along the line it's the same old sign awaitin' for me
No vacancy, no vacancy
My heart beats slower when I read on a door no vacancy
