Well I packed up my old clothes and drove on down the road
Four hunderd miles or more until I reached my next show.
The wind was blowing cold and brother don’t you know
This pain inside my heart just won’t let go.
I never was one to follow a straight and narrow path
But I would now if it would lead me to my past.
Back to her loving arms is where I want to go
To the one who left me out in the cold.
If I could turn back the hands of time
To the day when she was mine
If she’d take me back right now
I would walk the line
If I could turn back the hands of time.
She never wanted me to leave her all alone
She needed someone there to keep her warm at home
Her words now are so clear in my mind
If I had only read between the lines.
I’ll play another smoke filled bar for tips in a jar
Another lonely night just me and my guitar
But if she would open up her heart to me again
I’d stop running down this road that has no end.
