emmylou harris – smoke along the track lyrics

(alan rose)

one day the train was p-ssin’
i caught it comin’ by
to look this old world over under god’s blue sky
my darlin’ stood there weepin’ as i was looking back
i kissed my baby cryin’ in the smoke along the track

goodbye so long until i come back home
you’ll be my dream
goodbye so long, there’s lots of places that i’ve never seen
i’ll always be a drifter but i’ll be driftin’ back
to where i left you cryin’ in the smoke along the track

i like to keep on goin’ it helps me when i’m blue
i get the urge to travel that’s all i want to do
i just can’t settle down because i like to roam
and when i hear that whistle blow i’ve gotta move along

goodbye so long there’s something down the track keeps callin’ me
goodbye so long i guess that’s just the way i’ll always be
so when i get that feelin’ don’t try to hold me back
i’d only leave you crying in that smoke along the track

i know my baby loves me i love my baby too
but he don’t understand me when i’m feelin’ blue
and when i hear that whistle blow, i hurry home and pack
and leave my baby cryin’ in the smoke along the track.

goodbye, so long, i hate to leave you, but i’ve got to go
goodbye, so long, it’s coming down just hear that whistle blow
it’ll be here in a minute, you’ll wave and i’ll look back
i’m gonna leave you cryin’ in the smoke along the track.

goodbye so long until i come back home
you’ll be my dream
goodbye so long, there’s lots of places that i’ve never seen
i’ll always be a drifter but i’ll be driftin’ back
to where i left you cryin’ in the smoke along the track
to where i left you cryin’ in the smoke along the track
