"A Long Time Ago" as written by and Mccormick Hopkins....
You crossed my mind again today, I was out to get the mail
I wondered if you think of me when you're riding the rails
And I wondered if you cared at all, sometimes I don't know
And I was hoping you could write to me from a long time ago

I had that dream again last night, we were back in Chicago
We were riding 'round and talking 'bout things you said I ought to know And you told me how hard life would be and I'm learning that it's so
And I was hoping you could call me up at a long time ago

I think about that summer night when you said you'd always care
I think about this lonely life when your words turn cold in the air
And now the winter's almost here

You know that I would write a book but the story's seldom told
Of a fool who'd go and walk the bridge back to a long time ago

So here I'm stuck in Santa Fe in a trailer by the road
With only dreams of yesterday and a long time ago
I have only dreams of yesterday and a long time ago
