Morning Train

Nanci Griffith


(WORDS & MUSIC BY SUZY ELKINS/MIGHTY NICE MUSIC/BMI/FIRE AWAY MUSIC/BMI
& ROBERT FIELD/SHARP CIRCLE MUSIC/ASCAP)


There's a morning train
Headed for New Orleans
Carrying business men and week day shoppers
I have sixteen bucks and a dollar in change
That's not a bad price for a one way ride
On a morning train

I give you my devotion
You left me heartsick
Oh, you couldn't have hurt me more
Not workin' with a night stick
Now I'm tired of sharin' this bed of nails
So come first light I'm gonna be right
With the mornin' train

CHORUS:
So good-bye lover, I'm goin' undercover
Crescent City's gonna swallow me
Gonna skip my ring 'cross the Mississippi River
When it sinks I won't feel a thing
When it sinks I won't feel a thing

I'm gonna be stayin'
With a short time acquaintance
When I met him he was playin'
On the gulf breeze circuit
He didn't play no hit songs or TV themes
He's a guitar man just a hired hand
From a local band

CHORUS:
So good-bye lover, I'm goin' undercover
Crescent City's gonna swallow me
Gonna skip my ring 'cross the Mississippi River
When it sinks I won't feel a thing
When it sinks I won't feel a thing

BRIDGE:
The whistles blowin' clear and loud

When I hit the station
I'll take a taxi to the corner
I'm gonna meet him by a street car
Name of what-cha-ma-call-it
My imagination
Won't let us miss a thing
Life's gonna be fine when I leave him behind
On a mornin' train

Compositor: Suzy Elkins
