Emmylou Harris - White Line Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

It seems like I was there from the start

A witness to your wild and reckless heart

You showed me the way but now you're gone

Quicker than the trigger of an outlaw's gun

Living fast and dying young

A victim of this road you left me on

 

[Chorus]

White line took my baby

Led him down that dark highway

Headlight blind, driving crazy

If my wheels keep turning

Gonna roll that white line away

 

[Verse 2]

We worked the road as hard as we could drive her

But now I am the only survivor

From night to night at every place I play in

The sweetness of your song remains

I'll be the keeper of the flame

Until every soul hears what your heart was saying

 

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

All the nights you spent alone

All the love I'd never shown

All the words I could not say

Till that white line took you away

White line took you away

 

[Verse 3]

I'll follow this white line down where it's winding

Because somewhere up ahead your light's still shining

The sound of the silver strings will guide me

I've stood and watched the bridges burn

I'm past the point of no return

Oh, how I wish that you were here beside me

 

[Chorus][x2]

 

[Outro]

White line took my baby

Led him down
