Dixie Chicks – Northern Rail lyrics

I'm gonna ride that northern rail
I'm gonna follow the lonesome trail
To the place where my heartaches can fly
And the midnight sky is a diamond veil
On the northern rail

There's nothing I own and nothing that I lack
When you're runnin' away, you ain't gonna be lookin' back
I never wanted it to end this way
But there was no good reason to stay when the feelin' had
died
So I'm gonna ride

I'm gonna ride that northern rail
I'm gonna follow the lonesome trail
To the place where my heartaches can fly
And the midnight sky is a diamond veil
On the northern rail

I'm lookin' for a reason why love can turn to rust
He had a voice that was soft but his heart was as dry as dust
He knew the highway was callin' me
And that was enough to make him find another to bride
So I'm gonna ride

I'm lookin' for a place that I've never seen before
And I'm ridin' this train to a wide and a lonesome shore
I still don't know what I'm hopin' to find
But I'm leavin' love behind on the morning tide
So I'm gonna ride

I'm gonna ride that northern rail
I'm gonna follow the lonesome trail
To the place where my heartaches can fly
And the midnight sky is a diamond veil

I'm gonna ride that northern rail
I'm gonna follow the lonesome trail
To the place where my heartaches can fly
And the midnight sky is a diamond veil
On the northern rail
On the northern rail
On the northern rail
