Emmylou Harris – Smoke Along The Track lyrics

(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
