Smoke Along the Track
recorded by Stonewall Jackson
written by Alan Rose and Don Helms
G                               C                G  
One day the train was passin' I caught it comin' by
To look this old world over under God's blue sky
   G                              C             G    
My darlin' stood there weepin' as I was lookin' back
                               D7              G      
I kissed my baby cryin' in the smoke along the track
G               C                                   G     
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
     G                       C                G    
I'll always be a drifter but I'll be driftin' back
                                  D7              G      
To where I left you cryin' in the smoke along the track
                           C                 G
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
   G                                              C                           G
I know I just can't settle down because I like to roam
                                  D7              G
And when I hear that whistle blow I've gotta move along
                          C                                                                         G
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
   G                             C              G        
So when I get that feelin' don't try to hold me back
                                 D7              G
I'd only leave you cryin' in the smoke along the track
                                          C                  G
I know my baby loves me I love my baby too
But she don't understand me when I'm feelin' blue
    G                               C              G    
And when I hear that whistle blow I hurry home and pack
                                D7              G  
And leave my baby cryin' in the smoke along the track
                             C                                                   G
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
      G                          C                  G    
It'll be here in a minute you'll wave and I'll look back
                                  D7              G
I'm gonna leave you cryin' in the smoke along the track
