I'm always running behind the time Just like this train Shaking into town With the brakes complaining
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 Iovin'Il make you crazy If you can't find your goodness '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 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 And the kids got cokes and chocolate bars There's a thin man smoking a fat cigar Jealous lovin'lI make you crazy If you can't find your goodness 'Cause you've lost your heart
What are you going to do now You've got no one To give your love too...
Well I've got this berth and this roll down blind I've got this fold up sink And these rocks and these cactus going by And a bottle of German wine to drink Settle down into the clickety cIack With the clouds and the stars to read Dreaming of the pleasure I'm going to have Watching your hairline recede (My vain darling) Watching your hair and clouds and stars I'm rocking away in a sleeping car This jealous lovin's bound to make me Crazy I can't find my goodness I lost my heart Oh sour grapes Because I lost my heart
