about

Written many years ago on a midnight train to Georgia.

lyrics

Train tracks a-windin'
Through darkness so deep
Wind like a river
And rock me to sleep
'Cause my baby, he's gone
And he's left me alone-
So wind like a river,
And carry me home.

Train wheels a-rollin'
Down miles so long
Rollin' like thunder
To carry me on
'Cause my baby, he's gone
And he's left me alone-
So roll on like thunder,
And carry me home.

Train whistle's blowin'
Through midnight so clear
Sings like an angel
To dry all my tears
Cause my baby, he's gone
And he's left me alone-
So sing like an angel
And carry me home.

I've been everyplace
That these railroads can go
And I've got all the freedom
My heart cares to know
But I'd trade it all
In the wink of an eye
If I could be home
With my baby tonight

So wind like a river
Roll on like thunder
Sing like an angel
And carry me home
Wind like a river
Roll on like thunder
Sing like an angel
And carry me home
