I'm Movin' On



That big eight-wheeler rollin' down the trackMeans your true-lovin' daddy ain't comin' back'Cause I'm movin' on, I'll soon be goneYou were flyin' too high, for my little old skySo I'm movin' on
That big loud whistle as it blew and blewSaid hello to the southland, we're comin' to youWhen we're movin' on, oh hear my songYou had the laugh on me, so I've set you freeAnd I'm movin' on
Mister fireman won't you please listen to me'Cause I got a pretty mama in TennesseeKeep movin' me on, keep rollin' onSo shovel the coal, let this rattler rollAnd keep movin' me on
Mister Engineer, take that throttle in handThis rattler's the fastest in the southern landTo keep movin' me on, keep rollin' onYou gonna ease my mind, put me there on timeAnd keep rollin' on
I've told you baby, from time to timeBut you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mindNow I'm movin' on, I'm rollin' onYou've broken your vow, and it's all over nowSo I'm movin' on
You've switched your engine now I ain't got timeFor a triflin' woman on my main lineCause I'm movin on, you done your daddy wrongI warned you twice, now you can settle the price'Cause I'm movin on
But someday baby when you've had your playYou're gonna want your daddy but your daddy will sayKeep movin' on, you stayed away too longI'm through with you, too bad you're blueKeep movin' on
