Hank Snow

"Mainliner (The Hawk With Silver Wings)"

(There goes that mainliner) A hawk with silver wings!
(There goes that mainliner) Stole my love from me
I can't compete with an open sky
Goodnight my love, good luck, goodbye! (Mainliner)

She was born in a land of snow, gypsy heart, just born to roam
Took one look at an aeroplane that's when I lost my love
Tonight's she's servin' someone tea, behind a cloud where I can't see
A hostess on a big main line that goes from sea to sea!

(There goes that mainliner) A hawk with silver wings!
(There goes that mainliner) Stole my love from me
I can't compete with an open sky
Goodnight my love, good luck, goodbye! (Mainliner)

[Instrumental Break]

Hot rod cars are just too tame, my girlfriend likes bigger game
Motors roar in an open sky, New York on the beam
Down by the runway all alone, seems that gal is never home
When I can't hold her in my arms, I hold her in my dreams

(There goes that mainliner) A hawk with silver wings!
(There goes that mainliner) Stole my love from me
I can't compete with an open sky
Goodnight my love, good luck, goodbye! (Mainliner)

She has starlight in her eyes, caught it from the midnight skies
Moonbeams in her golden hair, that's my restless love
Always cravin' lands afar, guided by an evening star
Like an eagle on its lonely flight that circles up above

(There goes that mainliner) A hawk with silver wings!
(There goes that mainliner) Stole my love from me
I can't compete with an open sky
Goodnight my love, good luck, goodbye! (Mainliner!)
