Midnight Train lyrics

Album: Heavy Love

I was standin' at the station
Ten to midnight in the rain
I was mindin' my own bus'ness
Waiting for that midnight train

Nobody in sight, starin' at my shoes
I took out my paper to find me some good news
Mindin' my own bus'ness
When the ticket man calls my name
Yeah, yeah, babe

There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line

So I say, "If it ain't too much trouble
When's the local out of town?"
His reply: "Two a.m."
If I'm leavin' local-bound

I can catch it in forty minutes
If I want to grab the express
But the local trains are hard to come by
This time of night, more or less
Listen, said

There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line

So I stood for forty minutes
It was raining and it was cold
When the express rolled down the track
I did not care where it was gonna go
Yeah, yeah,

He said
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line
