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 don’t try to run listen to me son

He said son you know I’ve been waiting on you
And right then that old hollow train whistle blew
And I can’t lie It Sent chills up and down my spine
That’s when I asked what do you want with me
It’s so dark in here that I can’t see
Did I do something wrong
No son and this won’t take me long

You see you’re riding on my train of blues
And there has been so many that’s come before you
With one thing in mind yeah you’re all the same
You forget why you started to sing and play
Not looking for the money and the fame
And I’m only gonna say this one time
This song is what’s 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
Don’t hold anything back there’s no place here for slack
And you better play and sing for the love of this thing you do
Don’t 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
It’s 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
Don’t hold anything back there’s no place here for slack
And you better play and sing for the love of this thing you do
Don’t 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 it’s a brand new day
Everything else will work itself out ok
