1. Chattanooga

From the recording Brewgrass


I’m an old steam engine train in a hard driving rain
all the trestles I been countin’ lead me straight to Lookout Mountain
I’m a big rig blowing by ‘neath a blue November sky
And I pull a heavy load as I rumble down this road

Chattanooga I’m coming to ya with a love to set you free
Don’t wanna to change you, I’d never aim to my Tennessee mystery

I’m a raven upon the wind flown to hell and back again
And I hear the angels call me home across the Cumberland Plateau
I’m the ghost you knew before I’m the dream worth dying for
I won’t be satisfied til I’m standing by your side
