I rode a freight train to El Paso Texas
Happiness I was tryin' so hard to find
Walked across the Rio Grande to another country
Trying to get my baby off my mind.
Trying to get my baby off my mind.

They tell me that she's out in California
Sometimes I think she's still walking by my side
I know another's world now she lives in
I'm trying to get my baby off my mind.
I'm trying to get my baby off my mind.

I hear that she has gone and wed another
I know now a new love's hard to find
I walk the streets all night in El Paso
Trying to get my baby off my mind.
Lord, I'm trying to get my baby off my mind.

--- Instrumental Steel - piano ---

I can hear that mornful whistle of the freight train
Moanin' out his lonesome highball sigh
So now I'm on my way out to California
Trying to get my baby off my mind.
I'm trying to get my baby off my mind.
Trying to get my baby off my mind

I'm trying to get my baby off my mind.
Trying to get my baby off my mind.
I'm trying to get my baby off my mind...
