Lyrics

Merle Haggard

I pulled into Memphis thirteen minutes early first time in two weeks
There's where she came to meet me as I stepped down off of 51 and needed sleep
And the baby's overdue I know you need some things
But the more that we discuss it it's the same
Long train rolling got a feeling and I'm knowing she's not waiting for me
These rails keep getting longer and this feeling's getting stronger she won't let me be
I love my woman fire and rain but I won't give up my train
Baby came in April while I was in Chicago in the pouring rain
Black car and rusty tanker three boxcars and an empty sack of mail
And though I get lonely sometimes I know there's just no other way to explain
Long train rolling

Long train rolling
