Holly Cole Train Song

I broke down in east St. Louis
on the Kansas City line
I drunk up all my money that I borrowed every time
I fell down at the derby
well the night's just as black as a crow
the train took me away from here
the train can't bring me home

What made my dream so hollow
I was standing at the depot
with a steeple full of swallows
that could never, what could never, who could never never ring the bell
I've gone ten thousand miles away
without one thing to show
it was a train took me away from here
the train can't bring me home

Well I remember when I left
without bothering to pack
You know I up and left just the clothes I had on my back
now I'm so sorry for what I've done
and I'm out here on my own
it was a train took me away from here
the train can't bring me home

it was a train took me away from here
the train can't bring me, the train can't bring me, the train can't bring me... home
