Diamonds To Coal

It's the twilight hour. As the sun goes down, I see a flatbed Ford with a scrapyard load rattle off through town. The railroad crossing lights flash on--- there ain't no train in sight. A crescent moon will soon ascend as day gives way to night. and I feel home... and I think how far away I got from home back in the bad old days, but I'm done turning diamonds to coal. Now just before dinner time, this old drunk comes knocking on my door. Say he's looking for some girl lived here twenty-seven years ago. The radio in the kitchen is playing Papa Was A Rolling Stone, and as he strolls away into the night and the streetlights flicker on, I get to thinking about home.... and how sometimes there comes a day when to try to get back home...
