Marty Stuart – Long Train Gone lyrics

Written by Marty Stuart

It's trouble on the left and trouble on the right
I've run from trouble nearly all my life
It's true, yes it's true
I met a dark-haired lady with a crystal ball
She said the law's gonna get ya, and stick ya behind stone walls
Then she took my money and run away
Well I was like a long, train, gone
Gone, a long time ago
Long, train, gone
Gone like you've never seen before

I saw the fireballs flashin' through the joker's eyes
But when she reached for my heart, I cut her right down to stone
I left her standin' alone
I stayed low to the east in the west bound rain
I thought I missed the flood before it fell down again at dawn
I thought it best to move on again

And I was like a long, train, gone
Gone, a long time ago
Long, train, gone
Gone like you've never seen before

When the walls come tumblin' down,
And the rain continues to fall
And you feel yourself shakin' when the light's gone out in the hall
And you're all alone

Son, be like a long, train, gone
Gone, a long time ago
Long, train, gone
Gone like you've never seen before
Gone like you've never seen before
