Hank Snow – Southbound lyrics
Hear the clickety clack
Of the railroad track
Means the wheels are rollin'
And I'm goin' back.

To the girl I left in a rundown shack, I'm southbound
As the miles rush by I miss her more and more
Tears in my eyes and my heart is sore
Soon I'll be a knockin' on her front door, I'm southbound.

Southbound to my baby, southbound I'm nearly crazy
Gonna take her in my arms and never let her go
Never gonna leave her, never ever anymore
Soon I'll be a knockin' on her front door, I'm southbound.

--- Instrumental ---

Now the rhythm of the wheels
Call a memory
Every mile it comes
A little closer to me.

Soon it's gonna be reality, I'm southbound
My heart keeps saying boy you made a mistake
Thought you was a rambler but you're only a fake
This'll be the last trip I'm a gonna make, I'm southbound.

Southbound to my baby, southbound I'm nearly crazy
Gonna take her in my arms and never let her go
Never gonna leave her, never ever anymore
Soon I'll be a knockin' on her front door, I'm southbound.

--- Instrumental ---

Now the night that I left her,
Well, she pleaded with me
I know that you're leavin'
But it has to be.

I'm hopin' that she is a waitin' for me, I'm southbound
It's hard to wait till I can see her face
I still remember how her sweet lips taste
Not another day am I gonna waste, I'm southbound.

(Southbound to my baby, southbound, I'm nearly crazy)
Gonna take her in my arms and never let her go
Never gonna leave her never ever anymore
Soon I'll be a knockin' on her front door, I'm southbound.

--- Instrumental ---
