I pulled into Memphis thirteen minutes early first time in two weeks
That's where she came to meet me
As I stepped down off of fifty one and needed sleep
And the baby's overdue I know you need some things
But the more that we discuss it, it's the same

Long train rollin', got a feeling and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer and this feeling's gettin' stronger
She won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train

Baby came in April while I was in Chicago In the pouring rain
Twelve flat cars in an empty tanker
Three boxcars in an empty sack mail
And although I get lonely, sometimes I know
That there's just no other way to explain

Long train rollin', got a feeling and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer and this feeling's gettin' stronger
She won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain
But I won't give up my train, no way

Long train rollin', got a feeling and I'm knowin'
She's not waitin' for me
These rails keep gettin' longer and this feeling's gettin' stronger
Won't let me be
But I love my woman fire and rain
And I can't give up my train, no way, no way

Yeah, alright
