She was beautiful as Southern skies the night he met her
She was married to someone
He was doggedly determined that he would get her
He was old, he was young

From time to time he'd tip his heart but each time she withdrew

Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance
Everybody thinks it's true
Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance
Everybody thinks it's true

Well eventually the boy and the girl get married
Sure enough they have a son
And though they both were occupied with the child she carried
Disagreements had begun

And in a while they fell apart it wasn't hard to do

Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance
Everybody thinks it's true
Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

Two disappointed believers two people playing the game
Negotiations and love songs are often mistaken for one and the same

Now the man and the woman they remain in contact
Let us say it's for the child
With disagreements about the meaning of a marriage contract
Conversations hard and wild

But from time to time he makes her laugh
And she cooks a meal or two

Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance
Everybody thinks it's true
Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance

What is the point of this story what information pertains
The thought that life could be better is woven indelibly
Into our hearts and our brains
Like a train in distance, train train train
