lyrics

I was born near where the Spoon River flows
under the whispering winds of the plains
I wandered across the wild Atlantic
I've been lost on the streets of far lands

I came back to take the slow train west
across the fields turned red in the sun
and of all the people I could see in my dreams
you have always been the one

chorus:
I rode the train to the Mississippi
wrapped my mind in rails and wires
now as the sun falls so slowly and sweetly
stand with me at the shore of night stars
at the shore of night stars

I crossed in the flood when the rains wouldn't end
walked streets paved with stones and silver coins
all the beauty that staggers my heart
and I can only long for you

I would give it all for a lingering moment
every dawn in every verdant land
I would give it all to stand on the prairie
and feel the heat of your skin

chorus
