An easy song about how life decisions sometimes work like traps. Good for a pensive moment realizing your life is what you made it. Settle back and ride the rails. Great bass fills. Male Vocals, Americana Music, Americana Roots
Southbound whistle on a southbound train
Every whistle calls your name
But I know where those tracks lead to
So I’m sitting here with the can’t leave blues, uh huh.
Playing with dreams it’s a crazy game
After you eat you’re hungry again.
The best laid plans of mice and men
Can’t put Humpty together again
Thought I’d grab you underneath that tree
But the can’t leave blues grabbed a hold of me, uh huh.
But I love that smile you gave to me
I’m keeping it now as a memory
Someday I’m going to fly
You’re going to miss me by and by
Someday you gonna see
And won’t that be something?
I got baby clothes and baby teeth
Babies underneath my feet
I thought I might just run away
But those can’t leave blues told me to stay, uh huh
I wouldn’t trade you for anything
You make me cry and you make me sing.
But I don’t know why you gotta grow so fast
Goes to show nothing can last
Someday, Baby, you’ll be gone
Kick them can’t leave blues and move along, uh huh
Ain’t nothing different except what’s changed
And what the can’t leave blues have rearranged.
