David Simmons - Old Lonesome Train Lyrics


I had a dream I woke riding this old lonesome train
Rolling down the tracks in the pouring rain
That old light board read Nashville Tennessee
And the only one riding on her was me

But in the darkness of that old rail car
I could hear one single guitar
Moaning out those country blues
Playing a long ghostly old tune
So I stepped up closer to get a better view

What the hell could this fellow want with me
I inched close enough that I could almost see
When a voice from the dark called out boy just let it be
Just sit down donít try to run listen to me son

He said son you know Iíve been waiting on you
And right then that old hollow train whistle blew
And I canít lie It Sent chills up and down my spine
Thatís when I asked what do you want with me
Itís so dark in here that I canít see
Did I do something wrong
No son and this wonít take me long

You see youíre riding on my train of blues
And there has been so many thatís come before you
With one thing in mind yeah youíre all the same
You forget why you started to sing and play
Not looking for the money and the fame
And Iím only gonna say this one time
This song is whatís on my mind

Son you better play that guitar like this is your last day to breathe
And write it all down into a song before you leave
Donít hold anything back thereís no place here for slack
And you better play and sing for the love of this thing you do
Donít be a fool never lose site of you
Swallow all that pride you better leave it behind
Sit and listen to me for the rest of this ride
And when you step off this train in that brand new place
Put that big Texas smile cross your face
Itís a brand new day
Everything else will work itself out ok

And with that he was gone
But those words in my heart they carry on
And you can bet to this very day
I remember that tune he played
Riding that old lonesome train
In the pouring rain

He said son you better play that guitar like this is your last day to breathe
And write it all down into a song before you leave
Donít hold anything back thereís no place here for slack
And you better play and sing for the love of this thing you do
Donít be a fool never lose site of you
Swallow all that pride you better leave it behind
Sit and listen to me for the rest of this ride
And when you step off this train in that brand new place
Put that big Texas smile cross your face itís a brand new day
Everything else will work itself out ok
