Chris Knight – I'm William Callahan lyrics
[Verse 1]
I'm William Callahan
I used to be a ramblin' man
I left home at seventeen
Hopped a freight to Birmingham
Started poor as Kentucky coal
Lined my pockets with Denver gold
I've been cold as Alaska snow
Searching for the sun

[Chorus 1]
It was a long time ago
I had a restless soul
Trains come and whistles blow
I let 'em roll

[Verse 2]
This is my wife, Angeline
She used to be a cajun queen
I took her from the mayor's son
Bourbon Street, New Orleans
She had a will no man could tame
She took her chances when they came
Left with me on a midnight train
Searching for the sun

[Chorus 2]
It was a long time ago
She had a restless soul
Trains come and whistles blow
She let 'em roll

[Verse 3]
Trains roll, blowing steam
Through an old man and old woman's dreams
We look in each other's eyes
There ain't a lot that we ain't seen
We'd be out there running tonight
But we've run the race and fought the fight
We think we did alright

[Chorus 3]
It was a long time ago
We had a restless soul
Trains come and whistles blow
We let 'em roll
