How long has that evening train been gone?
I wanna know
How long yeah, has that evening train been gone?

I have my babe that was standing at the station
Waiting for a train
I ran to the door with my heart in my hand

And all my future plans, I've gotta catch him if I can
Is that express Mr. Station man
I woke up this mornin' with a smile on my face
Feelin' that the world, the world was a beautiful place

How long has that evening train been gone, ooh yeah?
How long has that evening train been gone?

On a scrap of paper was the train arriving information
His room was empty and his closet's bare
And not a single shirt was hangin' there

How could the guy just up and leave me?
And what did I do that was so displeasing
Only yesterday he helped me type
He told me everything, everything's gonna be alright

Oh, he said he loved me and he cried
Oh yeah, said he loved me and he cried
Oh, yes he did now

There must be an explanation
Come on and move out the station
Can't you see that he's taking my world
And making me a sad sad girl
That's why I can't let go, that's why I gotta know

How long has that evening train been gone?
I wanna know how long has the train been gone now?

Oh yeah, has that evening train been gone?
Right now, can't wait a minute longer

Has that evening train been gone?
Right now, don't want to wait a minute longer
