Confederate Railroad Long Gone Lyrics

Last updated: 11/27/2007 10:00:00 AM

Abilene Airport, six am, he had a teary little woman holding on to him
saying, "Promise me, Billy, you'll call me when you reach L.A."
He said, "I'm keeping your number, honey, right up here."
He was tapping on his temple, but the point was clear, he had no intention of ever coming back, no way

He was long gone...long, long gone
skipping like a stone,
he packed up his heart and he was long gone

Two packs of peanuts and a Canada Dry
Had him thinking what a luxury it was to fly
it was the best way out of a love that wasn't meant to last
and all his favorite words he used to love to hear
Like whenever or whatever you want my dear
are just memories now, somewhere in the distant past

He was long gone...long, long gone
skipping like a stone,
he packed up his heart and he was long gone

Nine months later on a T V show,
he saw a teary little woman he used to know,
Saying, "Lord, yes Oprah, he left me back in Abilene"
She flashed his picture for the world to see
And said if anybody knows this S O B
tell him Junior's hungry, there ain't nothing in this world that's free

He was long gone...long, long gone
skipping like a stone,
he packed up his heart and he was long gone





Nine months later on a tv show,
He saw a teary little woman that he used to know,
saying, "Lord, yes, Oprah, he left me back in Abilene"
Then she flashed his picture for the world to see,
Said, "If anybody knows this lousy SOB,
Tell him Junior's hungry, there ain't nothing in this world for free!"

He was long gone...long, long gone
skipping like a stone,
he packed up his heart and he was long gone
