Two Ten Train

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.
