I'm up in the world, but I'd give the world to be where I used to be, A heavenly nest, where I rest the best, means more than the world to me. It's only a shanty in old Shanty Town the roof is so slanty it touches the ground. But my tumbled down shack by an old railroad track, like a millionaire's mansion is calling me back. I'd give up a palace if I were a king. It's more than a palace, it's my everything. There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown in a shanty in old Shanty Town.
