Warren Zevon – Nighttime In The Switching Yard lyrics

Written by Jorge Calderon, David Lindell, Waddy Wachtel, and Warren Zevon
C. 1978 Zevon Music/Bmi and Polite Music/Ascap

Nighttime in the switching yard
Get it out on the mainline
Listen to the rhythm of the train go by
Listen to the train whistle whine
Nighttime in the switching yard

See that train...
The midnight train runs both ways

Do it
Doot dat doot dat doot dadoot
Listen to the train whistle whine
Listen to the train
Listen to the track
