1.
Last night a coyote howled in the meadow
  And a train whistle echoed down the hill
  There was a rustling in the leaves that stirred up my memories
  They played me that old traveling song
  And I wished that I was Already Gone
   
2.
This morning geese flew low past my window
  They were winging their way to the south
  They did not have much to say but they pointed out the way
  They showed me deep snow won't be long
  And I wished that I was Already Gone
 
bridge I don't want to spend another winter-without-end
  Here in this northern prairie town
  It's warm down Tucson way. I think I'll head on out today
  Next year maybe, I'll be back around
  Next year, I'll be back around
 
3.
There's a tear in your eye as you watch me
  Stuff my clothes in a dirty duffle bag
  There's a fire in your kiss that I know I'm gonna miss
  But this rambler's gotta keep moving on
  And I wish that I was Already Gone
 
coda
Yeah, this rambler's gotta keep moving on
  And I wish that I was Already Gone
   
  Additional / optional bridge from Three for the Road
bridge I don't want to spend another winter-without-end
  Here in this northern prairie town.
  It's warm out in L. A.. I think I'll head out there today
  Next year maybe, I'll be back around.
  Next year maybe, I'll be back around.
   
  Optional coda:
coda
Yeah, this old boy's gotta keep moving on
  And I wish that I was Already Gone.
 

"I was driving home from the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in late September, 1996. My Acura broke down outside Ellsworth, KS. The car was towed back to Salina, and I spent 4 days in a Howard Johnson Motel while it was being fixed. I could see a winter snow storm building up in the West. I wanted to get home before I got caught in a blizzard, and was wishing I was Already Gone."
