Down the street
A baby just cried
When he woke up all alone

A train's leaving town
Oh, that lonesome sound
It's chilling me right to the bone

A song is playing
I can barely hear
About a love that's gone wrong
The freezing rain on my window pane
Listen, they're playing my song

Taps being played
By a soldier's grave
So sad, it torments your soul
Listen to that North wind moan
Tonight is so dark and cold

Somewhere a siren
Cuts through the night
It sounds like the
Whole world's gone wrong

Thunder just warned
But it's coming a storm
Listen, they're playing my song

Listen, they're playing my song
