  • The thunder cracks against the night
    The dark explodes with yellow light
    The railroad sign is flashing bright
    The people stare but I don't care
    My flesh is cold against my bones
    My Cheryl's going home

    Come hear me shout against the rain
    Is there a way to stop this train
    I got some reasons to explain
    About the way I was today
    The whistle moans and I'm alone
    My Cheryl's going home

    Santa Rose Special's down the line
    I'm running desperately behind
    There's only one thing on my mind
    The rain and tears are in my eyes
    The things I have to say won't be known
    My Cheryl's going home Writer/s: BOB LIND
