This song is by Steve Forbert and appears on the album Jackrabbit Slim (1979) and on the album The Best of Steve Forbert: What Kinda Guy? (1993).

(Long Instrumental Intro)

Well, the road seems so long before me
I'm feeling confused and hungry
Dark clouds are blocking moonlight
Time is sleepin'
Road signs are all again' me
Daybreak sorta seems to take forever
Cars pass and put me down
I'm tired and freezing

I'll find and I'll hold you
In my memory and once again
I'm living in those harmonies
The sweet love that you give
Sure goes a long, long way
And I, oh I, I won't forget it
Oh no

Well, I'm trying to be an honest injun
Slow walking down a noisy sidewalk
Cruel words from rowdy cowboys
Here in boomtown
Seems everybody's shooting six-guns
I'm sick of trying to please 'em all
I heard tell that it can't be done
And I don't deny it

I'll find you and I'll hold you
In my memory and once again
I'm living in those harmonies
The sweet love that you give
Sure goes a long, long way
And I, oh I, I won't forget it
Oh no

(Instrumental Bridge)

Well, well train coming rolling down the track now
Click clack and I can't go back now
Hot kettle on your mama's stove
And I've heard it whistle
I don't wanna see no fortune teller
I'd rather do without prediction
I'll see it when it's all around me
Hey, what's the hurry?

I'll find you and I'll hold you
In my memory and once again
I'm living in those harmonies
The sweet love that you give
Sure goes a long, long way
And I, oh I, I won't forget it
No I won't
Hey

(Long Instrumental Outro)
