Johnny Thunders – Subway Train lyrics

I can't ever understand
Why my life's been cursed, poisoned, condemned
When I been trying every night to hold you near me
But I'm telling you, it ain't easy

Ever since I been riding
Right on the subway train
You can hear the whistle blowing
You might think I'm going insane

And now your friends
They're filling up my car
But you're so busy reading Suzy says
You can't look now
You didn't see your lovers
They're all dressed in rags
You know you hid as pushing up posies
Trying to get you fed

We was all riding
Right on the subway train
And you can hear the captain shouting
He thinks I've gone insane

Cause I keep riding
Keep on riding
Cause I keep on riding, riding, riding
Keep on riding

You stop and you stare
As I'm leaving my favorite place
We have no regards
You can't find a trace
You gotta get on back to daddy
That's all it's gonna be
He got the poison black arts of the pimps
But don't you stop and stare

I seen them traveling
Right on the subway train
You can hear the captain shouting
He thinks we've all gone insane

Cause we keep on riding, riding, riding, riding
Cause we keep riding, riding, riding
Keep on riding

I think I see the train
I see you got open track
