here's a traveling song sent to you from me
i wrote it on kansas highway two eight three
where a roadside dream
had carried me away
into the closing of the day

in the twilight fade, the stars, they hung so low
i turned on my favorite gospel radio
and let the blessings pour out upon this world
and said a prayer for you, my girl

the great night is falling
the great night is falling
i'm back out on my own
don't bother calling when the great night is falling
because i'm lost out on the road

there are many reasons to ramble 'cross this land
do not make excuses, see it while you can
north, south, east, and west
let the four winds blow
their sweet breath upon your soul

there is no destination for those who like to roam
restless through the night, following the song
in america, with grace and liberty
may your spirit always be

the great night is falling
the great night is falling
and i'm out here all alone
there's no use calling, the great night is falling
and i'm back out on the road

here's a traveling song sent to you from me
i wrote it on kansas highway two eighty three
near st. jacob's well with the last rays of light
disappearing out of sight

the great night is falling
the great night is falling
i'm so far from my home
there's no use calling when the great night is falling
i'll be lost out on the road

the great night is falling
the great night is falling
oh, i'm out here all alone
don't bother calling, the great night is falling
and i'm lost out on the road

yeah, i'm back out on the road
i'm out here on the road
