I'M MOVIN' ON
by Hank Snow
(D) That big eight-wheeler, rollin' down the track
Means your true-lovin' daddy ain't(D7) comin' back
I'm movin'(G) on; I'll soon be (D) gone.
You were (A7) flyin' too high; for my little old sky,
So I'm movin' (D) on.
That big loud whistle, as it blew and blew
Said hello Alabama, We're(D7) comin' to you
And we're movin'(G) on; oh, hear my(D) song
You had(A7) the laugh on me, so Iíve set you free
And I'm movin'(D) on.
Mister Engineer, take that throttle in hand
This rattler's the fastest in the(D7) southern land
Keep movin'(G) on; keep rollin'(D) on
Youíre gon(A7)na ease my mind,so put me there on time
Keep rollin'(D) on.
I warned you baby, from time to time
But you just wouldn't listen or (D7)pay me no mind
Now I'm movin' (G)on, I'm rollin' (D)on
You have (A7)broken your vow, and it's all over now
So I'm movin'(D) on.
But someday baby, when you've had your play
You're gonna want your daddy, but your(D7) daddy will say
Keep movin' (G)on, you stayed away too(D) long
I'm(A7) through with you; too bad you're blue
Keep movin'(D) on.
