Some roads are only seen at night
Ghost roads, nothing but neon signs
But some nights the neon gas gets free
Turns into walking dead like me

And I've been makin' promises I know I'll never keep
One of these days I'm gonna leave you in your sleep
I have to go when the whistle blows, the whistle knows my name
Baby, I was born on a train

I know that you were never young
And I know you probably won't get old
But honey, nobody's gonna hurt you anymore
And nobody's gonna make you wanna die

But I've been makin' promises I know I'll never keep
One of these days I'm gonna leave you in your sleep
I have to go when the whistle blows, the whistle knows my name
Baby, I was born on a train

I'll go one cold and gray morning
And you won't remember anything
But some people don't believe in time
And some of us don't believe in life

But I've been makin' promises I know I'll never keep
One of these days I'm gonna leave you in your sleep
I have to go when the whistle blows, the whistle knows my name
Baby, I was born on a train
Baby, I was born on a train
