Train Song Lyrics

Well I broke down in East St. Louis
On the Kansas City line
I drunk up all my money
That I borrowed every time
And I fell down at the derby
the night's black as a crow
It was a train that took me away from here
But a train can't bring me home

What made my dreams so hollow
I was standing at the depot
A steeple full of swallows
That could never ring the bell
And I come ten thousand miles away
not one thing to show
Well it was a train that took me away from here
But a train can't bring me home

I remember when I left
Without bothering to pack
You know I up and left
With just the clothes I had on my back
Now I'm sorry for what I've done
And I'm out here on my own
Well it was a train that took me away from here
But a train can't bring me home

Well it was a train that took me away from here
But a train can't bring me home
