INTRO 
Waitin' by the railroad in the wind and the rain, 
I'll know I'll not be ridin' that old freight train. 
Tonight there is a special, its light I can see, 
The train that will take me to my destiny. 
Out of the darkness, the light I can see, 
Out of the darkness, shinin' on me. 
Following that light, I'll never roam, 
Following that light, I'm goin' home. 
INSTRUMENTAL 
My ramblin' days are done and my thoughts wander back, 
To days of ridin' boxcars and campin' on the track. 
Now I'm old and weary, I don't regret a thing, 
With these fading memories, I hear the angels sing. 
Out of the darkness, the light I can see, 
Out of the darkness, shinin' on me. 
Following that light, I'll never roam, 
Following that light, I'm goin' home. 
INSTRUMENTAL 
The only pal I had was old Cobber Joe, 
He went before me so long ago. 
Though its been a long time, I know that he'll be 
Standin' by the golden gates, waitin' on me. 
Out of the darkness, the light I can see, 
Out of the darkness, shinin' on me. 
Following that light, I'll never roam, 
Following that light, I'm goin' home. 
Following that light, I'm goin' home.
