Hi, Mudlark - I found it here (click)
-Joe Offer-

(Karla Bonoff)

Traveling at night, the headlights were bright
And we'd been up many an hour
And all through my brain
Came the refrain
Of home and its warming fire

And Home
Sings me of sweet things
My life there has its own wings
To fly over the mountains
Though I'm standing still

The people I've seen
They come in between
The cities of tiring life
The trains come and go,
But inside you know
The struggle will soon be a fight


Traveling at night,
The headlights were bright.
But soon the sun came through the trees
Around the next bend
The flowers will send
The sweet scene of home in the breeze

I heard the song that starts out" Traveling at night, our headlights were bright, and we'd been up many an hour" (don't know the name) live many years ago and fell in love with the melody. Ive sung the words to the middle verse as:
"The people I meet, they come in between/the city, the tiring life./Trains come and go, but inside, ya know/ The struggle will soon be a flight"
but I've never been certain of it... Have I got it right?
