GOLDEN ROCKET (Hank Snow) Hank Snow Also recorded by: Pat Boone; Johnny Horton; Jim & Jesse; Red Knuckles & the Trailblazers; Willie Nelson; RFD Boys. Board! From old Montana down to Alabam’ I’ve been before and I’ll travel again You trifling women can’t keep a good man down You’ve dealt the cards but you missed the play So hit the road and be on your way Gonna board the Golden Rocket and leave this town I was a good engine a-runnin on time But baby I’m switchin’ to another line So honey, never hang your single out for me I’m tired of running on the same old track Bought a one way ticket and I won’t be back This Golden Rocket is gonna roll my blues away Instrumentals Hear that lonesome whistle blow That’s your cue and by now you know That I’ve got another true love waitin’ in Tennessee This midnight special is burning the rails So woman don’t try to follow my trail This Golden Rocket is gonna roll my blues away Hear her thunder on through the night This Golden Rocket is a-doin’ me right That sunny old southland sure is a part of me Now from your call-board erase my name Your fire done went out you done lost your flame And this Golden Rocket is a-rollin’ my blues away Instrumentals That old conductor he seemed to know You’ve done me wrong I was feeling low For he yelled aloud we’re over that Dixon Line The Brakeman started singin’ a song Said “You’re worried now, but it won’t be long” “This Golden Rocket is leavin’ your blues behind” Instrumentals Then the Porter yelled with his southern drawl, “Let’s rise and shine. Good mornin’ you all” And I sprang to my feet to greet the newborn day When I kissed my baby in the station door That whistle blew like it never before On the Golden Rocket that rolled my blues away (Contributed by lylemalone - May 2006)
