about

It's a song on a train.

lyrics

When the sun catches up to the morning, I’ll be
on a train headed somewhere East
Got no bags to check there’s nothing left
got my harp in tow at least

Someone said what is done is done
there’s no sense fighting fate
But I contest: I know you mean the best
it’ll never be too late

I saw her sittin in the dining car
pouring booze in her coffee cup
I sidled in, said ‘how you been?
Conversation: let’s strike one up'

This train is filled with businessmen
not nowhere folks like me
she said you’re all the same, just the clothes are changed
you both got nowhere good to be


And time will tell me what to think and what I’m doin’ here
and if time don’t know we’ll take it slow and play this one by ear

When the came to a rest she looked distressed
got up to walk away
i took her hand, said ‘listen, ma’am’
there’s something i gotta say

I don’t know what I’m doing here
I’m lonesome and confused
But as long as I’m stuck in this world
I wanna be lost with you

And time will tell me what to think and what I’m doin’ here
and if time don’t know we’ll take it slow and play this one by ear
