Back up train
(Back up train)
Turn it around
(Turn around)
I've got to take my baby
(Got to take my baby)
Ohh, wherever I'm bound

I'm
(Roaming through this lane)
Everyday, baby
(Roaming through this lane)
Ohh

I'm a lonely man
Just a lonely man
Need a helping hand
Yeah, yea, yea

Back up train
(Back up train)
But ease the pain
(Ease the pain)
Take me to my baby
(Take me to my baby)
Oh, I'm going insane

So, Mister conductor
(Turn this train around)
All you gotta do now
(Turn this train around)
Ohh

Music in my hand
I'm a lonely man
Need a helping hand
Yeah, yeah
So back this train up
It's all you gotta do now, now

I'll never forget the girl, I left behind
(Back up train)
Her tears, her kiss, her face stay on my mind
I got to make her say that she'll forgive me
I gotta get back, so, ohh

Baby, baby, baby, baby
(Back up train)
I need, I need your loving right now, darling
Oh
(Back up train)
Oh, I need my baby
