Lyrics

That whistle sounding in the distance,
Must have worn down your last resistance,
Before I knew what was happ’ning all along,
You were going, you were gone,
I know who to blame...

I blame the train.
Whose idea was it anyway,
To come roaring through the town,
Givin’ every restless heart an out?
Somebody’s gonna pay
I blame the train,

'Cause I’ve run it over in my mind,
If it’s once, it’s been a thousand times,
You'd never leave without good reason of your own,
If there was nothing wrong,
What coulda' driven you away?

I blame the train.
Whose idea was it anyway,
To come roaring through the town,
Givin’ every restless heart an out?
Somebody’s gonna pay...

If we’d even been a little off track, I’d understand
If there was any way that I could get you back,
I’d find your trail, I’d chase it down,
I’d ride the rail, wherever you’re bound,
And I’d take us to a trainless town,

I blame the train,
Whose idea was it anyway?
To come roaring through the town,
Givin’ every restless heart an out,
Somebody’s gonna pay
I blame the train
ooooooh
