  • In the early morning rain with a dollar in my hand
    With an achin' in my heart and my pockets full of sand
    I'm a long way from home and I miss my darlin' so
    In the early mornin' rain, with no place to go

    Out on runway number nine, big seven-o-seven set to go
    But I'm stuck here on the grass where them cold winds blow
    Yeah, the liquor tasted good and the women all were fast
    Ah, but there she goes, my friend, though she's rollin' out at last

    Hear the mighty engines roar, see the silver wing on high
    She's a-wingin' westward bound, high above the clouds
    She'll fly where the morning rains don't fall and the sun always shines
    She'll be flyin' o'er my home in about three hours time

    This old airport's got me down, it's no earthly good to me
    'Cause I'm stuck here on the ground cold and drunk as I can be
    You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
    So, I best be on my way in the early mornin' rain
