Smoke Along the Track  Stonewall Jackson

Recorded by Stonewall Jackson
Written by Alan Rose and Don Helms
[G] One day the train was passin', I [C] caught it comin' [G] by
To look this old world over under God's blue [D] sky
My [G] darlin' stood there weepin' as [C] I was lookin' [G] back
I kissed my baby cryin' in the [D] smoke along the [G] track.
[G] Goodbye, so long, un-[C] til I come back home, you'll be my [G] dream
Goodbye, so long, there's lots of places that I've never [D] seen
I'll [G] always be a drifter, but [C] I'll be driftin' [G] back
To where I left you cryin' in the [D] smoke along the [G] 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 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
But she 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 comin', I just heard 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.
