Testo Downbound Train

Testo Downbound Train

I had a job, I had a girl

I had something going mister in this world

I got laid off down at the lumber yard

Our love went bad, times got hard
Now I work down at the carwash, where all that ever does is rain

Don't you feel like you're a rider on a downbound train



She just said "Joe I gotta go, we had it once

We ain't got it anymore"

She packed her bags left me behind

She bought a ticket on the Central Line

Nights as I sleep, I hear that whistle whining
I feel her kiss in the misty rain

And I feel like I'm a rider on a downbound train



Last night I heard your voice

You were crying, crying

You were so alone

You said your love had never died

You were waiting for me at home

Put on my jacket, I ran through the woods

I ran till I thought my chest would explode

There in the clearing, beyond the highway

In the moonlight, our wedding house shone

I rushed through the yard

I burst through the front door

My head pounding hard



Up the stairs I climbed

The room aws dark, our bed was empty

Then I heard that long whistle whine

And I dropped to my knees, hung my head and cried



Now I swing a sledge hammer on a railroad gang

Knocking down them cross ties

Working in the rain

Now don't it feel like you're a rider on a downbound train
