Now the highway's gone and the signs are bare
And the bad wind blows no good
And the roads aren't headed anywhere
Like I always thought they would

Out in the fields that cold rusted steel
Has jumped the track
And there won't be no returning now
That's why I wear black

In my mind there's a picture of Sally-Anne
She's the last, she was the first
Now she's dead or in the arms of another man
And I'm not so sure what's worse (ch)

In my dreams there's a road that leads me home
In my dreams I'm turning back
But my dreams they fade and the chains remain
That's why I wear black
