  • I got so down and out in 'Frisco
    Tired of the pills and the rain
    I picked up, headed for the sunshine
    I left a good thing behind
    Seemed all of our love was in vain
    My baby's coming in on the Tucson train

    I come here looking for a new life
    One I wouldn't have to explain
    To that voice that keeps me awake at night
    When a little peace would make everything right
    If I could just turn off my brain
    Now my baby's coming in on the Tucson train

    We fought hard over nothing
    We fought till nothing remained
    I've carried that nothing for a long time
    Now I carry my operator's license
    And spend my days just running this crane
    My baby's coming in on the Tucson train

    Hard work'll clear your mind and body
    The hard sun will burn out the pain
    If they're looking for me, tell 'em buddy
    I'm waiting down at the station
    Just praying to the five-fifteen
    I'll wait all God's creation
    Just to show her a man can change
    Now my baby's coming in on the Tucson train

    On the Tucson train
    On the Tucson train
    Waiting on the five-fifteen
    Here she comes Writer/s: Bruce Springsteen
