Court and Spark

Just Like This Train

on Court and Spark (1974), Songs from the Bottom, Vol. 1 (2016)

I'm always running behind the time
Just like this train
Shaking into town
With the brakes complainin'

I used to count lovers like railroad cars
I counted them on my side
Lately I don't count on nothing
I just let things slide

The station master's shuffling cards
Boxcars are banging in the yards
Jealous lovin will make you crazy
If you can't find your goodness
Cause you lost your heart
Cause you lost your heart

I went looking for a cause
Or a strong cat without claws
Or any reason to resume
And I found this empty seat
In this crowded waiting room
Everybody's waiting

Old man sleeping on his bags
Women with that teased up kind of hair
Kids with the jitters in their legs
And those wide, wide open stares
The kids got cokes & chocolate bars
The thin man's smoking a fat cigar
Jealous lovin' will make you crazy
If you can't find your goodness
Cause you've lost your heart
Cause you've lost your heart

Well I've got this berth and this pull down blind bye
I've got this fold up sink
And these rocks and cactuses going by
And a bottle of German wine to drink
Settle down into the clickety clack
With the clouds and the stars to read
Dreaming of the pleasures I'm gonna have
Watching your hairline recede, my vain darling

Watching your hair and clouds and stars
Rocking away in a sleeping car
This jealous lovin', it drives me crazy
I can't find my goodness, 'cause I lost my heart
Oh sour grapes
'Cause I lost my heart
