He knows
It’s coming fast
His engine slow
His windows black

It’s shaken him
Shaken him silly
Ache in his bones
Get along billy

It’s dark in here
Can’t see the sky
Look at that blue
And close his eyes

And comb his hair
For the longest dream
Takin’ him for to see

He’s ready
For his last trip
It’s time
For him to rest

On the eastbound rail
And know what’s next
He loved her well
The best he can

She could not bare
She don’t know how
Deep in his heart
She will be there

To comb his hair
For the longest dream
Takin’ him for to see

Fly away
Beyond these walls
Above the clouds
Where there ain’t no fog

He isn’t here
Look at the sky
Into that blue
And close his eyes

And comb his hair
For the longest dream
Takin’ him for to see
