Two Ten Train (Tom Campbell and Linda Albertabo) Well I woke up this morning, Mmmm And the sun refused to shine. I knew my baby left me, Mmmm With a troublin' mind. It rains every mornin', Mmmm And evening's the same. And it's gonna be a long time, Mmmm 'Til I hear the Two Ten Train. Well I looked out my window, Mmmm And I couldn't keep from cryin'. I saw the train a leavin', Mmmm Take my baby down the line. The driver on that engine He ain't no friend of mine. He's taken all the women, Mmmm And left the men behind. Well I won't be leavin' Big Bend, Mmmm For another seven years. Don't you find another baby, Mmmm To laugh away your tears. When I get back to Houston, Mmmm I'm gonna shout and tell. 'Bout how the Big Bend bottom, Mmmm Is a livin' burnin' hell. When your lovin' baby leaves you, Mmmm Lord, it's makes you feel so bad. Makes you think about the women, Mmmm And the good times you've had. Don't leave me down here baby, Mmmm All shackeled to a chain. Won't you let me ride down with you, Mmmm All on the Two Ten Train.
