  • Packin' my suitcase writin' a tear stained good-bye note
    Sayin' so long to a love gone wrong and that's all she wrote
    Leavin' behind what once was mine with sad regrets
    But it's all gone now and I'm leavin' town on the Heartbreak Express

    Walkin in the rain with a heart full of pain to the train depot
    The only things that's gonna keep me warm now is my overcoat
    Lost and lonely waitin' in line at the ticket desk
    Hey mister won't you give me a one-way ticket on the Heartbreak Express

    I'm gonna roll on down the line
    I'm gonna go so far I'm gonna get it off my mind
    It hurts to know it ain't enough when you give your best
    Got a ticket to ride and I'm leavin' tonight on the Heartbreak Express

    Oh, I couldn't hold a candle to the flaming beauty that caught his eye
    It's killin' me now but I won't stay around and let him watch me die
    Oh, it just goes to show you never do know 'cause I never would'a guessed
    I'd be sittin' here now on a train sorrow bound called the Heartbreak Express

    I'm gonna roll on down the line
    I'm gonna go so far I'm gonna get it off my mind
    Maybe someday, somewhere, someway I will forget
    But there's no goin' back so roll down the track you ole Heartbreak Express
    Feelin' alone while a low whistle moans on the Heartbreak Express

    Roll on, roll on down the line
    I'm gonna get it off my mind
    Roll on, roll on, roll on down the line
    Got a ticket to ride so I'm leavin' tonight on the Heartbreak Express

    Roll on, roll on, roll on Writer/s: DOLLY PARTON
