Every time I hear the midnight trains rollin' out to the open plains
A sense of freedom fills my veins I get the fever
Every time I sparrow flies up into the endless skies

Something down inside me cries I get the fever
I get the fever to pack up and leave here wander wild like the wind
This town's too full of mem'ries of cruel love

And I can't stand it seein' her with him
Every time I hear a buddy say he's put lots of dust and clay
Between him and yesterday I get the fever

I get the fever to pack and leave here and I think maybe I'll do just that tomorrow
This town's too full of mem'ries of cruel love
Everywhere I turn there's pain and sorrow

Every time I hear a buddy say he's put lots of dust and clay
Between him and yesterday I get the fever
I get the fever I get the fever I get the fever
