Midnight Train

I have been all around my old home town
I have searched everywhere I know
I can’t find any trace of my girl in this place
Now there’s nothing to do but go

   I’ll be riding that midnight train when I’m leaving
   And I’m goin away to stay
   Always wanted to know where this engine did go
   Gonna go where it goes today

Oh she said she’d be true til the fighting was through
That she’d wait for me til the end
But she’s proven untrue and our sweet love is through
So I’m catching the train again

When she hears this old song then she’ll know that she’s wrong
Cause I’m leaving my old home town
Oh she told me she’d wait just to be my sweet date
Then she threw down my heart to the ground
