Waiting for a Train Lyrics Jerry Lee Lewis


Jerry Lee Lewis - Waiting for a Train Songtext

All around the water tank,
waitin' for a train.
A thousand miles away from home,
sleeping in the rain.
I walked up to a brakeman,
just to give him a line of talk,
He said: ?If you've got money,
I'll see that you don't walk.?

?Well I haven't got a nickel,
not a penny can I show.?

He said: ?Get off, you railroad bum.?
And he slammed the boxcar door.

[ piano ]

Well he put me off in Texas,
a place I dearly love.
The wide open spaces all around me,
the moon and stars above;
Nobody seems to want me,
or lend me a helping hand.
I'm on my way from Frisco,
headin' back to Dixie Land.
My pocketbook is empty,
my heart is filled with pain.
I'm a thousand miles away from home,
just waitin' for a train.
