  • It's so hard to listen to these trains
    Outside my window here it comes again
    And it's calling me begging me
    Follow me down the track
    And it moans so dark and low
    Baby ain't comin' back

    I refuse to believe
    It could happen to me and you
    It's lonesome and it's hard and it's true

    It got this whiskey to take care of my lips
    I got these long cool steel strings
    At my fingertips
    I ain't got nothing to soothe my aching soul
    Except this screeching and screaming iron
    To tell me where I ought to go

    I refuse to believe
    It could happen to me and you
    It's lonesome and it's hard and it's true

    I hear the train sigh
    And idle down below
    Why your love is so sweet and while
    Is something I'll never know

    It sounds like crying
    It sounds like letting go
    Breathing and lying
    Sinking and dying slow
    And I watch from my window
    Touching the cold glass sky
    As the train rolls down the track
    I say goodbye Writer/s: MELISSA ETHERIDGE
