Infamous Stringdusters — My Destination lyrics

Verse 1
When I was a child and all the world was new
I met a little girl just a sweet as mornin' dew
And she gave me a promise
I hope will last forever more

I was just a country boy who had it in his mind
To leave that country town just to see what I could find
But I knew I'd come back
To find the girl I loved before

Chorus
And love, love, love was my destination
I traveled so far to be with you again
And the train, train, train will leave me at the station
Will you be there to take me by the hand

Verse 2
In my pocket is a letter you wrote me long ago
'Bout how you'd always love even if I had to go
But it's just a piece of paper
And you were just a child

And the picture that I have of you is all faded and brown
But it's all I've got to get me back to the old hometown
Where you'll be waiting for me
Like you promised that you would

Chorus
And love, love, love was my destination
I traveled so far to be with you again
And the train, train, train will leave me at the station
Will you be there to take me by the hand

( Solos )

Verse 3
Pulled into the depot, for ten years I've been gone
And would I know what you like after being gone so long
Then I thought I caught a glimpse
Of that long golden hair

But it was just an illusion
Because you were no where to be found
I was lost in the confusion
And the train pulled out just as I turned around

Chorus 2
And love, love, love was my destination
I traveled so far to be with you again
And the train, train, train has left me at the station
Left me alone to hang my head and cry
Left me alone to hang my head and cry
