TIME TO GO by Larry Penn

Whistle on the midnight train sounds sweet tonight.
It’s calling me the way an old-time lover might
And every time the whistle moans it says to me:
I’ll take you back to where your soul is free.

Something about the way the lady sings tonight
Her raucous melody warms up the hobo’s night
And I have not felt this way since I was 17
Once upon a time when steam was king.

CHORUS: Come all your worn-out railroad bums
It’s time to go, it’s time to go, it’s time to go
Come all you worn-out railroad bums, get up in a row
A-travelin' back to where your soul is free

Somewhere in the murky night that whistle wails
I swear it’s callin’ me come on and ride the rails
It’s tellin’ me to leave my callused things behind
It’s tellin’ me it’ll take me back in time. CHORUS

One by one my friends have caught that westbound ride
They’re waiting by the river for me to come
No, you don’t have to worry what’s become of me
I’m travelin’ back to where my soul is free. CHORUS

We’re travelin' back to where our souls are free
