Donna Hughes – Sad Old Train lyrics

That sad old train
Sleeping on an old rusty track
She was from another time
Gone with the wind like the smoke from that ole stack
She brought smiles and waving hands
As she whistled by a sleepy town
It was once the way to go
Just a shiny nickel and you were homeward bound

Chorus: I've seen better days
Like that sad old train
On an old abandoned track
When you were holding me
I knew someday you'd leave
Like that old train
You won't be coming back

She gently rumbled in the sunshine
As she carried home the mail
Her letters keeping lovers waiting
Friendly little boys placing pennies on her rails I can relate to that old train
Since you left me all alone again
No one ever comes around
Once upon time we were riding on the wind

Chorus: I've seen better days
Like that old sad train
On an old forgotten track
When you were holding me
I knew someday you'd leave
Like that old train
You won't be coming back
Like that old train
Never coming back
