Lyrics:I'm goin' back where my garden blooms all year
Where the wintertime speaks softly in the fallin'
rain
I'm goin' back to my green eyed lover there
and we will dance along the banks of old
Lake Pontchartrain

Oh, I've grown pale beneath the streets of Montreal
Where the voices
ring like bells in French-Canadian
And the rivers stand imprisoned till the thaws
I am alone
at night and dream of my own Pontchartrain

Chorus:
Take me to the station... I am late
to catch my southbound train
Oh, I'm gonna call my cousin Libby
she will be waiting by the
tracks when I roll in
I'm gonna roll across America
just to stand beside my Pontchartrain
again

These old rails shake like thunder through the night
Soon I'll have my green eyed
lover's arms to comfort me
Oh, I can see my cousin Libby by his side
her hair will flow in
waves like on Lake Pontchartrain

(Repeat chorus)

I'm goin' back where my garden
blooms all year
Where the wintertime speaks softly in the fallin' rain
I'm goin' back to my
green eyed lover there
and we will dance along the banks of old Lake Pontchartrain
yes, we
will dance along the banks of old Lake Pontchartrain
we will dance along the banks of old Lake
Pontchartrain
and here comes the train
