Return Of The Drifter

Mark Brine

Written by: Mark Brine
1. Down a celestial railway
I watched the hobo come
guitar strapped ‘n singin’ out ...
the lonesome song he strummed ...
approaching in this vision
the world he’d left behind
a message in his melody
prophetic and sublime ...
2. Returning with a warning
to heed his haunting words
that echoed thru the bleakness
though distant, still I heard him singing ...
“A train bound for glory
will rattle soon this track
just beyond the sunset
it’s pounding its way back ...
3. So turn from all your idols ...
do not put your trust in me
for I am but a messenger
of a much greater majesty
no, put your house in order
do not tarry for it’s late”
then I watched the drifter’s notes ascend
as the dawning day did break
4. Yes, and as I raised my eyes to follow (them)
from this feverish sleep, I woke
the scene burning in my mem’ry ... with all
the words that he had spoke
and in the dim light of my room
in my tremblin’ state, I wrote
this vision I had witnessed
that it might put to note ... (Yes ...)
