Townes  
 
He slowly walked away from town            
To the rail yard past the sandy flats
Sat inside the door of an old boxcar
Staring hard at the worn metal tracks
 
Thoughts gone wild through his brain
Flying with the Sandhill Cranes
Southbound to Socorro…
On wings of flame
 
Longing for comfort in just being alive            
He didn’t mean to hurt no one
Just needed leaving… Out and bound…
Adventure…  Chasing the sun…
 
His soul was sore from smiling and bending down
Hey look, one more silver dollar
Shining so bright            
On the cold hard ground… Cold hard ground
 
He dreamed of love and romance           
But the road was his best friend
It’s hard to find a woman who can wait  
Never knowing where that road will end
 
Thoughts gone wild through his brain
Flying with the Sandhill Cranes
Southbound to Socorro…           
On wings of flame
 
His thoughts went…       
I was a bright light in my mother’s eyes
She held me close against her breast…
Breathing and singing…                         
Sweet lullabies… Sweet lullabies…
 
Thoughts gone wild through my brain
Flying with the Sandhill Cranes
Southbound to Socorro…           
 
On wings of flame… Wings of flame
Wings of flame…Wings of flame
