Well I woke up this morning woah-oh
And the sun refused to shine
I knew I'd leave my baby oh
With a troublin' mind
It rains every morning oh
And evening is the same
And it's gonna be a long time oh
'Til I hear the 2:10 train

Well I looked out my window oh
And I couldn't keep from cryin'
I knew the old 2:10 oh
Would take me down the line
That driver on that engine oh
Well he ain't no friend of mine
He's taken all the women oh
And he's left the men behind

Well now he won't be leaving Big Ben oh
For another seven years
I'm gonna find another baby oh
To laugh away my tears
When I get back to Houston woah-oh
I'm gonna shout and tell
How the Big Ben bought 'em oh
It's a living burning hell

Now when your lovin' baby leaves you oh
Don't you feel so bad
It makes you think about the good times oh
With the one time man you've had
He's crying don't leave me here baby
Shackled to a chain
But let me ride down with you oh
Along the 2:10 train
