lyrics

I can't hear nothin, but the box cars jumping
when you tell me how to hang the clothes on the line
the diamond stars at night, don't shine to me as bright
as they did from the paths between the towns

I might get me the notion, to catch a train in motion
I might climb my midnight roof while everyone's at rest
people like me fine, but they don't know me truth in kind
whenever, wherever I roam

I'd trade my cars for trestles, red roses for thistles
I might pawn my sunday shoes for hard leather heels
I can't get worked up and swear, when I never really cared
how this here house it might pitch and peel

I've been layin in darkness, I am the midnight witness
to every rumble, ring, and holler from the edge of town
To take me off the tracks, is to lay me in my coffin
I'll break the morning all gold and red

Her cool breathing beside me, feels like its all behind me
and that smoke stack is piling up ahead
I see it when I'm sleepless, my train gold and stretched out endless
and I fall asleep to the pace and pound
whenever, wherever I roam
