Dwight Yoakam – Train In Vain lyrics

(mick jones, joe strummer)

They say you stand by your man
Tell me something I don't understand
You said you love me and that's a fact
And then you left me, said you felt trapped
Well some things you can't explain away
But the heartache's with me to this day

Chorus:

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

All the times that we were close,
I remember these things the most
I've seen my dreams come tumbling down
I can't be happy without you around
So alone I keep the wolves at bay
And there's only one thing I can say

Chorus:

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

So explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

Chorus:

Hey, did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

I got a job but it don't pay
I need new clothes, somewhere to stay
Hey without these things I can do
But without your love I can't make it through
But if you don't understand my point of view
Then there's not a damn thing I can do

Chorus:

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way

Did you stand by me?
No not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way
