Brakeman's Coat

lyrics

The road takes it slow
But I swear I'll be home before dawn
Sneak inside.
Just to sit by the bed with a smile
Kiss your cheek
Just to hear how you giggle in your sleep
And I'll be back in your tender arms

But until then the steel wheels
Are drumming the rhythm of my life
And the snake trail is headin'
Towards setting sun
And the engine is hummin' "Go on!"
But when I'm done
I'd rather be back where you are

The road shifts and turns
But I swear I'll be home before dawn
Oh, I hope
As I hang up my old brakeman's coat
In the dark
You'll turn the lights on to catch me offguard.
That old trick and a kiss on the neck.

But until then the steel wheels
Are drumming the rhythm of my life
And the snake trail is headin'
Towards setting sun
And the engine is hummin' "Go on!"
But when I'm done
I'd rather be back where you are
