Lyrics ~
That Old Train

 


I saw the sun go down at the edge of town
By the railroad yesterday
And the last train to pull out of my hometown
Slowly rolled away

And that old train is gonna make me cry
'Cause I don't wanna know
That darkness falls all around me now
And there's nowhere left to go

Ma and Pa, they're dead you know
And the corner store shut down
Nobody drinks with me anymore in the bars at night
That old drive-in, it burned to the ground

And that old train is gonna make me cry
It's got a whistle that's moanin' low
And darkness falls all around me now
And there's nowhere left to go

I heard sorrow rejoice down in memory's jail
Where no one ever escapes
Everybody there, they're just marking time
You can hurry, but you still have to wait

And that old train is gonna make me cry
It's got a whistle that's moanin' low
And darkness falls all around me now
And there's nowhere left to go

Discoveries are born, but they get here too late
And the fire's burnin' down low
There an emptiness up at heaven's gate
A dead end on the open road

And that old train is gonna make me cry
'Cause I don't wanna know
That darkness falls all around me now
And there's nowhere left to go
