Gone with the yesterday’s windin’ wind,
My only lover and my one true friend
Didn’t even tie the laces on her shoes.
Bought a ticket on the rail bound for Santa Fe,
Left me singin’ songs with the train all day.
You might even say I got the blues.

And I’m a-gonna lay here and listen
To that railroad a-whistlin’,
And anything I hear it say,
I’ll say too…

She could be down’n ‘Mexico by now,
Workin’ a saloon in a cowboy town
Hiding all those outlaws on the loose.
When I see a train passin’ by that way,
I only see the train ‘took my love away,
But love is a just a hangin’ hangman’s noose.

And I’m a-gonna lay here and listen
To that railroad a-whistlin’,
And anything I hear it say,
I’ll say too…

Well I picked up the paper and what did I see?
My lady’s eyes starin’ back at me
Her wayward wanted face all over the news.
She’s a free-runnin’, fast-gunnin’ gypsy queen
Robbin’ all the banks and the trains between.
I think she’s even got a lover too.

And I’m a-gonna lay here and listen
To that railroad a-whistlin’,
And anything I hear it say,
I’ll say too…

I’m a hitch-hikin’, train-hoppin’ ramblin’ lad,
Fallen out of love with a love gone bad
No matter where I go, just passing through.

And I’m a-gonna lay here and listen
To that railroad a-whistlin’,
And anything I hear it say,
I’ll say too…
Oh anything I hear it say,
I’ll say too…
Anything I hear it say,
I’ll say…
