​Smoke Along the Track

This song is by Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers and appears on the live album At the Ryman (1992).

One day the train was passin' a coalin' crawlin' by
To look this old world over under God blue sky
My darling stood there weeping as I was looking back
I kissed my baby cryin' in the smoke along the track

Goodbye, so long, until I come back home you'll be my dream
Goodbye, so long, there's lots of places that I've never seen
I'll always be a drifter but I'll be driftin' back
To where I left 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've gotta move along

Goodbye, so long, there's something down the track keeps calling me
Goodbye, so long, I guess that's just the way I'll always be
So when I get that feeling 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 he don't understand me when I'm feeling 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 gotta go
Goodbye, so long, it's coming now just heard the whistle blow
It'll be here in a man that you wave and all 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 my dream
Goodbye, so long, there's lots of places that I've never seen
I'll always be a drifter but I'll be driftin' back
To where I left you cryin' in the smoke along the track

Oh, I left you cryin' in the smoke along the track...
