Train tracks led me far away
They put holes in the shoes my mama made
I took her heart with me by mistake
But I think about her every day

Lord take me home to Raleigh
Let that river wash away my sins
Lord take me home to Raleigh
Let me see my lovin' girl again

My backpack is filled up with regret now
But i'm not too far gone for redemption
Her spirit it sinks at sunset
But in her daydreams we slow dance again

Golden fields I have traveled through
Just like her hair but her eyes cornflower blue
Crystal streams pure as her soul
My angel's love will my soul renew
