“Little Red Rider” Lyrics

Little red rider, ride on the railroad
And she cried
Little red rider, rides on the railroad
Waved goodbye

So long sunshine, ride away
I know you’ll come back someday
And light my light

Little Miss Red sleeps on the railroad
There she goes
Little Miss Red asleep in the railroad
Nobody knows
Little Miss Red is Little Miss Blue
And she looks a lot like you
Around the eyes

Nobody was home in town
Oh, nobody was home in town
Nobody was home in the town I called home
Somebody said, oh, they all drowned

Oh, goodbye, sweet miss, just give me one kiss
And then I’ll go
Bye bye, sweet miss, give me one kiss
But don’t let it show
Turn your brown eyes to the wall
Was that message there before
You were so wise?

[break]

Oh, goodbye, sweet miss, just give me one kiss
And then I’ll go
Bye bye, sweet miss, give me one kiss
But don’t let it show
Turn your brown eyes to the wall
Was that message there before
You were so wise?
Ah-ha

Mike: Thank you. Very much.
