My Destination (The Infamous Stringdusters)

When I was a child and all the world was new I met a little girl just a sweet as mornin' dew And she gave me a promise I hope will last forever more I was just a country boy who had it in his mind To leave that country town just to see what I could find But I knew I'd come back To find the girl I loved before And love, love, love was my destination I traveled so far to be with you again And the train, train, train will leave me at the station Will you be there to take me by the hand In my pocket is a letter you wrote me long ago 'Bout how you'd always love even if I had to go But it's just a piece of paper And you were just a child And the picture that I have of you is all faded and brown But it's all I've got to get me back to the old hometown Where you'll be waiting for me Like you promised that you would And love, love, love was my destination I traveled so far to be with you again And the train, train, train will leave me at the station Will you be there to take me by the hand Pulled into the depot, for ten years I've been gone And would I know what you like after being gone so long Then I thought I caught a glimpse Of that long golden hair But it was just an illusion Because you were no where to be found I was lost in the confusion And the train pulled out just as I turned around And love, love, love was my destination I traveled so far to be with you again And the train, train, train has left me at the station Left me alone to hang my head and cry Left me alone to hang my head and cry
