"I Can See Your Tracks" as written by and Laura Veirs....
Oh I can see your tracks
But I won't follow them
I'll just hope for rain
Or some kind of crazy wind
To erase them
And chase them into oblivion

Oh I can smell the smoke
From your fire, babe
But I'll leave you alone
And sleep in this lonely cave
And pray for
A storm to scrub this dirt away

Oh I can hear the snakes
Creeping cross the scene
I'm quaking in my boots
But you won't hear me scream
You're half way
Down to New Orleans
You're half way
Down to New Orleans

    Oh I can see your tracks
    But I won’t follow them
    I’ll just hope for rain
    Or some kind of crazy wind
    To erase them
    And chase them into oblivion

    Oh I can smell the smoke
    From your fire, babe
    But I’ll leave you alone
    And sleep in this lonely cave
    And pray for
    A storm to scrub this dirt away

    Oh I can hear the snakes
    Creeping cross the scene
    I’m quaking in my boots
    But you won’t hear me scream
    You’re half way
    Down to New Orleans
    You’re half way
    Down to New Orleans

    Love this track, and as for the meaning I think it's about trying to resist someone/forget about someone that's bad for you.
