lyrics

Yesterday I’m gone from Virginia
Yesterday’s been gone for a while
And I’m not sure what I’m looking for
But I been traveling these miles

She said she’d send me a letter
She said she’d write me everyday
She said our love would last forever
She threw our love away

So I’m headin up to New York City
Maybe I’ll make it for the dawn
I’m headin north to find a new way
I gotta keep moving on
On up that east coast line
To a place I can ease my mind
i’m heading far from these troubled days
leaving these hard times behind

Well Elizabeth is bright tonight
See all those lights shining true
And I’m heading up north on the Jersey turnpike
Leavin these Shenandoah blues

Maybe I’ll find me a woman
Maybe I’ll wind up alone
Maybe I’ll find what I’m looking for
Maybe I’ll find me a home

So I’m headin up to New York City
Maybe I’ll make it for the dawn
I’m headin north to find a new way
I gotta keep moving on
On up that east coast line
To a place I can ease my mind
i’m heading far from these troubled days
leaving these hard times behind

So Virginia’s gone tonight
Virginia’s been gone for a while
And I’m staring down the sunset in a brand new town
Leavin these heartaches in style

So I’m headin up to New York City
Maybe I’ll make it for the dawn
I’m headin north to find a new way
I gotta keep moving on
On up that east coast line
To a place I can ease my mind
i’m heading far from these troubled days
leaving these hard times behind
