Lyrics

Ten miles outside of Jackson, I stopped the car along the Natchez Trace
Cloaked in the Mississippi darkness, I let the tears roll down my face

News travels slowly sometimes; no news from you and I just assumed
You must be doing what I’ve been doing; and before too long time slipped by

But I look homeward, angel tonight
There’s a part of my heart that’s as cold as ice
As cold as solid wood in the cold winter ground

Ten miles outside of Jackson, I stopped the car along the Natchez Trace
Cloaked in the Mississippi darkness, I let the tears roll down my face

I will never touch you; I can never hold you
I will never see you again
And all I feel is empty; and I struggle to say goodbye
And there is no price, no sacrifice I can make
To ransom you back, to ransom you back

But I look homeward, angel tonight
There’s a part of my heart that’s as cold as ice
As cold as solid wood in the cold winter ground

Ten miles outside of Jackson, I stopped the car along the Natchez Trace
Cloaked in the Mississippi darkness, I let the tears roll down my face

Ten miles outside of Jackson
Ten miles outside of Jackson
Ten miles outside of Jackson
