Bob Seger – Train Man lyrics

And over in the teacher's home she waited by the phone

For calls which never rang, and people who never sang

Train man rambled dusty into town and made his daily round

Train man and he comes in the night
Brings her no love but he's right

Yes he's right

Through fog and misty morning dew, she'd seen his oily face
And he had touched her heart, taken it apart

Though he never stopped to speak a word his voice was all she heard
Train man and he comes in the night

Brings her no love but he's right

Little girl you're a pretty little girl
Yes he's right

Won't you come with me a while

Little girl in your frilly little world

Won't you give me your sweet smile

(first solo)

If you come tonight bring someone
If you come tonight bring someone
Don't come alone

If you come alone don't come
Don't come

Don't come


Yes I know he's right

Yes I know he's right
Oh I know he's right


She held his hand and whispered soft

I love you train man

He just grumbled like engine as it rumbles
And said someday

Train man and he knows something's wrong and he's right

Oh yes he's right
