Long John Baldry – Lights Of Cincinnati Lyrics

I remember still
And I guess I always will
That winter day I took the westbound flight
As I looked down from the plane
You were standing in the rain
You waved goodbye til’ I was out of sight

And I can see them shining
Through the willows and the pines
The lights of Cincinnati
Oh, so many miles behind
I could build myself a new life
And make it on my own
But the lights of Cincinnati
Will be calling me back home

Sometimes late at night
I watch the firelight
Make pictures of a life that used to be
For a moment I’m back there
In that same old rocking chair
You look across the room and smile at me

And I can see them shining
Through the willows and the pines
The lights of Cincinnati
Oh, so many miles behind
I could build myself a new life
And make it on my own
But the lights of Cincinnati
Will be callin’ me back home

But the lights of Cincinnati
Will be callin’ me back home
