Got a guitar, got a guitar on my back
And I'm standin' on this lonesome railroad track
Train's a-comin', it'll be here 'fore too long
But I don't think I can stop it with a song

Girl, that's kind of the way I'm feelin'
Trying to stop your leaving

Got a pebble, got a pebble in my hand
And I toss it out into the middle of the Rio Grande
But the river keeps runnin', don't even know that I'm around
I could throw in a million more and not slow it down

Girl, that's kind of the way I'm feelin'
Trying to stop your leaving

There's nothin' I wouldn't try
If I thought it would change your mind

But you don't love me, no, you don't love me anymore
And I know as soon as you walk out that door
Train's a-comin', river's runnin', train's a-comin', river's runnin'
Pain's a-comin', tears are runnin'

And that's kind of the way I'm feelin'
Knowin' I couldn't stop your leaving
