Well the midnight train can come and go without me;
Oh I don't need no taxi back to town.
I think I'll just stay right here in this deep old light,
Was supposed to meet someone here tonight,
Now I'm sittin here thinking,
Waiting on a dark-eyed gal.

No, I don't mind the rain; I never even noticed
And I don't feel the cold, it wouldn't matter anyhow,
As a matter of fact I could stay till the break of day,
I don't see as I'm in anybody's way;
I'm just sittin here thinking,
Waiting on a dark eyed gal.

She said she'd meet me at the station,
Don't believe she'll keep me waiting very long
Very long.
She never was one to let me know her mind,
So I'll stay right here, just doing my time
Just sitting here thinking,
Waiting on a dark eyed gal.

Yeah, the midnight train has come and gone without me,
I don't need no taxi back to town.
I think I'll just stay right here in this deep old light,
Was supposed to meet someone here tonight;
Now I'm sittin' here thinking,
Waiting on a dark eyed gal;
Yeah I'm just sitting here thinking,
Waiting on a dark-eyed gal.
