Smoke Along The Track Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

One day train was passin', I caught it comin' by
Look this old world over under God's blue sky
My darlin' stood there weepin' as I was looking back
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 come driftin' back
Where I left you cryin' in the smoke along the track

I like to keep on goin' it helps me when I'm blue
Get the urge to travel that's all I want to do
I just can't seem to settle down because I like to roam
When I hear that whistle blow I've gotta move along

Goodbye so long there's something down the track keeps callin' me
Goodbye so long I 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 cryin' in the smoke along the track

I know my baby loves me, I love my baby too
He don't understand me when I'm feelin' blue
When I hear that whistle blow, I hurry home and pack
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 comin' down just 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 my dream
Goodbye so long, there's lots of places that I've never seen
I'll always be a drifter and I'll come driftin' back
Where I left you cryin' in the smoke along the track
Oh I'm gonna leave you cryin' in the smoke along the track
