SMOKE ALONG THE TRACK
Emmylou Harris


(Alan Rose)

One day the train was passin'
Icaught it comin' by
To look this old world over under God's bluesky
Mydarlin' stood there weepin' asI was looking back
I kissed my baby cryin' in thesmoke along the track

Goodbye so long until I come back home
You'll be mydream
Goodbye so long, there's lots of places that I've neverseen
I'll always be a drifter butI'll be driftin'back
To where I left you cryin' in thesmoke along thetrack

I like to keep on goin' it helps me when I'm blue
I get the urge to travelthat's all I want to do
I just can't settle down because I like to roam
And when I hear that whistle blowI've gotta move along

Goodbyeso longthere's something down the track keeps callin' me
Goodbyeso longI guess that's just the way I'll always be
So when I get that feelin' don't try to hold me back
I'd only leave you crying in that smoke along the track

I know my baby loves meI love my baby too
But he don't understand me when I'm feelin'blue
And when I hear that whistle blow, I hurry home and pack
And leave my baby cryin' in the smoke along the track.

Goodbye, so long, I hate to leave you, but I've got to go
Goodbye, so long, It's coming downjust hear that whistle blow
It'll be here in a minute, you'll wave and I'll look back
I'm gonna leave you cryin' in the smoke along the track.

Goodbye so long until I come back home
You'll be mydream
Goodbye so long, there's lots of places that I've neverseen
I'll always be a drifter butI'll be driftin'back
To where I left you cryin' in thesmoke along thetrack
To where I left you cryin' in thesmoke along thetrack
