The Train-Station Blues

I’ve got the train-station blues,

I’ve got the train-station blues,

There’s nothing to do, so

I’ve got the train-station blues.

 

Those bleak trains run on and on,

Those bleak trains run on and on,

They are the beat of my song, yes

Those bleak trains run on and on.

 

I see the faces flashing by,

I see the faces flashing by,

They’re gonna leave and I don’t know why, oh

I see the faces flashing by.

 

I’ve got the train-station blues,

I’ve got the train-station blues,

There’s nothing to do, so

I’ve got the train-station blues.

 

Here I’m tired, weary, and alone,

Yes, here I’m tired, weary, and alone,

Tryin’ to make it on my own,

I’m tired, weary, and alone!

 

I’m watching couples bein’ glad,

Yes, I’m watching couples bein’ glad,

It’s still making me sad, ‘cause

I’m watching couples bein’ glad.

 

I’ve got the train-station blues,

I’ve got the train-station blues,

There’s nothing to do, so

I’ve got the train-station blues.

 

Do you too watch the world?

Do you too watch the world?

So many flags unfurled-

Do you too watch the world?

 

Those motions tell me the news,

Those motions tell me the news,

Those motions tell me the news:

We’ve got the train-station blues!

The End
