A lonesome whistle sails through the pines and finds me crying on my pillow
I wipe the tears and raise up my head I hear a forest call up low
Listen yonder comes a train mama is that the one he's on
The only thing that keeps me goin' is knowin' he's coming back home
And yonder comes a train

I broke his heart and he got on a train and told me come back anytime
Hope that I must have heard that old lonesome whistle at least ten thousand times
Listen yonder comes a train mama...
