Carter Family, The - Lonesome Pine Special Lyrics




I was walking out this morning
With rambling on my mind
I am going to catch the special
That train called Lonesome Pine

You can hear the whistle blowin'
And she's coming down the line
That's the train I catch this morning
To ease my troubling mind

Well, ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Well, ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Take me back to Texas
Back to my old home

Oh, I'm weeping like a willow
And I'm mourning like a dove
There's a girl way out in Texas
That I know I really love

Oh, I'm going back to Texas
Where the lonesome coyotes whine
Where the longhorn cattle are roaming
'Round that cabin home of mine

Well, ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Well, ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Take me back to Texas
Back to my old home

Oh, give me back my rifle
Oh, give me back my gun
Give me back my home in Texas
And my rambling days are done

Well, ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Well, ah-le-ho, ah-le-ho-lay
Take me back to Texas
Back to my old home
