Lyrics Downbound Train

I had a job, I had a girl
I had something going mister in this world
I got laid off down at the lumber yard
Our love went bad times got hard
Now I work down at the carwash
Where all it ever does is rain
Don't you feel like you're a rider on a downbound train
She just said Joe I gotta go we had it once we ain't got it any more
She packed her bags left me behind
She bought a ticket on the Central Line
Nights as I sleep
I hear that whistle whining
I feel her kiss in the misty rain
And I feel like I'm a rider on a downbound train
Last night I heard your voice you were crying crying you were so alone
You said your love had never died
You were waiting for me at home
Put on my jacket
I ran through the woods
I ran till I thought my chest would explode
There in the clearing beyond the highway
In the moonlight our wedding house shone
I rushed through the yard
I burst through the front door
My head pounding hard up the stairs I climbed
The room was dark our bed was empty
Then I heard that long whistle whine
And I dropped to my knees hung my head and cried
Now I swing a sledge hammer on a railroad gang
Knocking down them cross ties working in the rain
Now don't it feel like you're a rider
On a downbound train
