Smoke Along The Track - Emmylou Harris

(alan rose)

One day the train was passin?
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
