Smoke Along the Track

This song is by Dwight Yoakam and appears on the album Hillbilly Deluxe (1987).

One day the train was passing,
I caught it comin' by
To look this old world over,
Under God's blue sky
My darlin' stood there weepin'
As I was lookin' back
I kissed my baby cryin' in
The smoke along the track

Bye, bye, so long,
There's something down the track
It's callin' me
Bye, bye, so long,
I guess that's just the way
I'll always be
Now when I get this feelin'
Don't try to hold me back
I'll only leave you cryin' in
The smoke along the track

I like to keep on goin',
It helps me when I'm blue
I get the urge to travel,
That's all I want to do
I know I just can't settle down
Because I like to roam
And when I hear that whistle blow
I gotta move along

Bye, bye, so long,
There's something down the track
It's callin' me
Bye, bye, so long,
I guess that's just the way
I'll always be
Now when I get this feelin'
Don't try to hold me back
I'll only leave you cryin' in
The smoke along the track

I know my baby loves me,
I love my baby too
But she don't understand me
When I'm feelin' blue
And when I hear that whistle blow
I hurry home to pack
And kiss my baby cryin' in
The smoke along the track

Bye, bye, so long,
There's something down the track
It's callin' me
Bye, bye, so long,
I guess that's just the way
I'll always be
Now when I get this feelin'
Don't try to hold me back
I'll only leave you cryin' in
The smoke along the track

I'll only leave you cryin' in
The smoke along the track...
