Terry Callier – Midnight Mile lyrics

Like a ship without the ocean
Like a road without a wheel
Like a sun without the morning
People, that's the way I feel

But I'll be going home in style
Traveling one more midnight mile, yeah

I want a cold home or county
Where man must walk alone
That was the home of Muddy Waters
And they called him Daddy Rolling Stone, yeah

They said the road is such a trial
Traveling one more midnight mile, yeah

Now heaven help the people
Who's scufflin' day by day
All they need is to find a hero
Who can help show them the way

And maybe he'll be here after awhile
Traveling one more midnight mile

I looked into the heart of darkness
The reflection burnt my soul
I had to try to find a healer
And her love has made me whole

She had me crying like a child
Traveling one more midnight mile, yeah
