Jackie Greene – Nothing Comes From Nothing lyrics

I hear two trains in the distance
I hear two whistles blow
One has got my baby
The other i don't know

I sit here dumb!
Oh, and I thought you knew
Nothing comes from nothing
And that's all i get from you

I asked that stationmaster
But he just told me lies
He asked me for my ticket
There ain't no big surprise

That I sit here dumb!
My mind is getting blue
Nothing comes from nothing
And thats all i get from you

So if you see my baby
Tell her I was here
Tell her that I waited
Won't you make it mighty clear

That she's no good!
She's low-down-dirty-too
Yes nothing comes from nothing
And thats all i'll get from you
