"Day After Day" lyrics - JONI MITCHELL

"Day After Day"

Day after day
Miles and miles of railroad track
Night after night
Humming of the wheels
Their hum seems to say
He'll follow you someday
But someday seems a million miles away

Day after day
Make a dollar, need it twice
Night after night
Lie awake and dream
Of days of auld lang syne
Moonlight through the pine
And linen tablecloths all stained with wine

Day after day
Watch the hands move 'round the clock
Night after night
Searching for my soul
So this must be my fate
To sit and weep and wait
And pray my darling comes before too late
