Back to Train Song lyrics

Train Song

Well I broke down in St. Louis
On the Kansas city line
And I drunk up all my money
That I borrowed every time

And I fell down at the derby
And the nights black as a crow
There was a train that took me away from here
But a train cant bring me home

What made my dreams so hallow
Was standing at the depot
With a steeple full of swallows
That can never ring the bell

And I come 10,000 miles away
With not one thing to sow
Must have been a train that took me away from here
But a train cant bring me home

Well I remember when I lived
With out bothering the past
You know Ive been left with
Just the clothes out on my back

Now Im sorry for what Ive done
And Im out here on my own
Well it was a train that took me away from you
But a train cant bring me home

But it was a train that took me away from you
And a train cant bring me home
