Country road, Along the railyard, Take me home or I die!

Country road
Along the railyard
Conductor beacon on me
With the siege that only cry for home
its blood kicking heart 
And the taste a bile to my tongue
Tall are the tree by the river side
Where my images are painted with memory 
Of the good days when I’m innocent
Saint like the angel
Beauty like a new born
Let me go back I sing
But the siege sing of only home
Thousand of mountain sing along
The blue sky cry for the prodigal home coming 
Nature wave to celebrate
As the rail grumble along the line
Blowing the trumpet of home 
Home, only home my ticket sing 
Where more do my road lead
Run fast my train
Tears of mama still bath me every new day 
Her plea to come 
Her letters I refuse to open 
Her pain that I garbage
All coming back to me
Breaking my heart to pieces
I plead with the conductor 
Nothing but home
Take me home or I die
