I'm Moving On - Hank Snow/Kay Starr

That big eight wheeler a rollin' down the track

Means your true lovin' daddy ain't comin' back

'Cause I'm movin' on I'll soon be gone


You were flyin' too high for my little old sky

So I'm movin' on


That big loud whistle as it blew and blew

Said hello to the Southland we're comin' to you

And we're movin' on oh hear my song


You had the laugh on me so I've set you free

And I'm movin' on


Mister Fireman won't you please listen to me

'Cause I got a pretty mama in Tennessee

Keep movin' me on keep rollin' on


So shovel the coal let this rattle a roll

And keep movin' me on


Mister Engineer take that throttle in hand

This rattler's the fastest in the southern land

To keep movin' me on keep rollin' on


You're gonna ease my mind put me there on time

And keep rollin' on


I warned you baby from time to time

But you just wouldn't listen or pay me no mind

Now I'm movin' on I'm rollin' on


You have broken your vow and it's all over now

So I'm movin' on


You switched your engine now I ain't got time

For a triflin' woman on my main line

'Cause I'm movin' on you done your daddy wrong


I've warned you twice now you can settle the price

'Cause I'm movin' on


But someday baby when you've had your play

You're gonna want your daddy but your daddy will say

Keep movin' on you stayed away too long


I'm through with you too bad you're blue

Keep movin' on
