Play a Train Song

 

APPEARS ON


Smoking long black Cadillac, the engine's windin down
He'd park it up on the sidewalk like he owned the whole damn town
I'd here him talkin to some chick through a thick ghost of smoke
Through a thicker haze of Southern Comfort and Coke
He'd say girl you're hotter than the hinges hanging off the gates of hell
Don't be afraid, to turn to me, babe if a he don't treat you well
And by he, he meant me so I laughed and I shook his hand
He'd laugh a little bit louder as he'd yell up at the band

Play a train song pour me one more round
Make 'em leave my boots when they lay me into the ground
I am a runaway locomotive out of my one track mind
And I'm a looking for any kind of trouble that I can find

I got this old black leather jacket, I got this pack of Marlboro Reds
I got this stash here in my pocket, I got these thoughts in my own head
I got to run until I got to walk or until I've got to crawl
This moment that I'm in right now and nothing else at all

Play a train song pour me one more round
Make 'em leave my boots when they lay me into the ground
I am a runaway locomotive out of my one track mind

In the television blizzard lights we looked around his place
We found him cold there on the sofa a little smile across his face
And though I tried with all of my sadness somehow, I just a could not weep
For a man who looked to me like he died laughing in his sleep

Singing a train song, drinking him one last round
We made 'em leave his boots on, on the day they laid him down
He was a runaway locomotive out of his one track mind
Play a train song
Play a train song
Play a train song
