When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
In the window, there's a face you know
Don't the nights pass slow?

The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Just another mad, mad day on the road
I am just living to be lying by your side
But I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road

Made a rag pile of my shiny clothes
Going to warm my bones
I've got silence on my radio
Let the air waves flow

For I am sleeping under strange, strange skies
Just another mad, mad day on the road
My dreams is fading down the railway line
I'm just about a moonlight mile down the road

Yeah

I'm hiding, sister, and I'm dreaming
I'm riding down your moonlight mile
I'm hiding, baby, but I'm dreaming
I'm riding down your moonlight mile

Let it go now, come on up, baby
Yeah, let it go now, yeah
Flow now, baby, yeah, come on now
Yeah

Yeah I'm coming home
Cause I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road
Yeah... baby
