I'M MOVIN' ON
(Hank Snow)
« © '50 Hill & Range Songs »
That big eight wheeler rollin' down the track
Means your true lovin' daddy ain't comin' back
Cause I'm movin' on I'll soon be gone
You were flyin' too high for my little old sky so I'm movin' on
That big loud whistle as it blew and blew
Said hello to the Southland we're comin' to you
And we're movin' on oh hear my song
You had the laugh on me so I've set you free and I'm movin' on
Mister fireman won't you please listen to me
Cause I got a pretty mama in Tennessee
Keep movin' me on keep rollin' on
So shovel the coal let this rattle a roll and keep movin' me on
Mister engineer take that throttle in hand
This rattler's the fastest in the southern land
To keep movin' me on keep rollin' on
You're gonna ease my mind put me there on time and keep rollin' on
I told you baby from time to time
But you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mind
Now I'm movin' on I'll soon be gone
You've broken your vow and it's all over now so I'm movin' on
You switched your engine now I ain't got time
For a trifling woman on my main line
Cause I'm movin' on I'm rollin' on
I've warned you twice now you can settle the price cause I'm movin' on
But some day baby when you've had your play
You're gonna want your daddy but your daddy will say
Keep movin' on you stayed away too long
I'm through with you too bad you're blue keep movin' on
