The Evening Train Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I heard the laughter At the depot
But my tears fell like the rain
When I saw them place that low white casket
In the baggage coach of the evening train

The babies eyes are red from weeping
His little heart is filled with pain
"Oh daddy," he cried, "they're takin' momma
Away from us on the evening train"

As I turned to walk away from the depot
It seemed I heard her call my name,
"Take care of my baby and tell him darlin' that I'm goin' home
On the evening train."

I pray that God will give me courage
To carry on 'til we meet again
It's hard to know she's gone forever
They're carryin' her home on the evening train

I pray that God will give me courage
To carry on 'til we meet again
It's hard to know she's gone forever
They're carryin' her home on the evening train

They're carryin' her home on the evening train
