  • I came into Atlanta
    Dreamin' of Lorraine
    Came so tired of ridin'
    Cross the Savanna Plain
    Still feel the wheels a-rollin'
    Feel them just the same
    Steel wheels still a-rollin'
    On a long night train.

    She met me at the station
    Took me to her room
    Was a time of meeting
    Was a risin' moon.
    Angels set the table
    With candles and beer.
    Heard that midnight train moan
    Miles away from here.

    Lay me down a pallet,
    Lay it soft and low.
    Lorraine lay beside me,
    Sad I had to go.

    Gypsy boy I traveled with
    Played his old guitar.
    We watched that candle flicker
    Like some low morning star

    But the time to part must always come
    Time the bells must ring.
    Time for lovers to say goodnight
    I'll see you in my dreams.

    Time to part must always come
    Time when trade-winds sing.
    Time to hit the road again
    Time for travelin'.
