One Minute You're Here

Album: Letter To You (2020)
  • Big black train comin' down the track
    Blow your whistle long and long
    One minute you're here
    Next minute you're gone

    I lay my penny down on the rails
    As the summer wind sings its last song
    One minute you're here
    Next minute you're gone

    Baby, baby, baby
    I'm so alone
    Baby, baby, baby
    I'm coming home

    Autumn carnival on the edge of town
    We walk down the midway arm-in-arm
    One minute you're here
    Next minute you're gone

    I thought I knew just who I was
    And what I'd do but I was wrong
    One minute you're here
    Next minute you're gone

    Red river running along the edge of town
    On the muddy banks
    I lay my body down
    This body down

    Footsteps cracklin' on a gravel road
    Stars vanish in a sky as black as stone

    One minute you're here
    Next minute you're gone
    One minute you're here
    Next minute you're gone
    One minute you're here Writer/s: Bruce Springsteen
