There's no stronger wind
Than the one that blows
Down a lonesome railroad line
There’s no prettier sight
Than looking back
On a town you left behind
There is nothing, that's as real
As a love that's in my mind

Close your eyes
I'll be here in the morning
Close your eyes
I'll be here for a while

There's lots of things along the road
I'd surely like to see
I'd like to lean into the wind
And tell myself I'm free
But your softest whisper's louder
Than the highways call to me

Close your eyes
I'll be here in the morning
Close your eyes
I'll be here for a while

All the mountains and the rivers
And the valleys can't compare
To your blue lit dancing eyes
And yellow shining hair
But I could never hit the open road
And leave you laying there

Close your eyes
I'll be here in the morning
Close your eyes
I'll be here for a while

Oh lay your head back easy, love
And close your crying eyes
I'll be laying here beside you
When the sun comes on the rise
And I'll stay as long as the cuckoo wails
And the lonesome bluejay cries

Close your eyes
I'll be here in the morning
Close your eyes
I'll be here for a while
