Lyrics

LISTEN FOR THE TRAIN

I RODE WITH MY DADDY
LEARNED THE WAYS OF A HIGHWAY MAN
TAKING WHAT WE NEEDED
USING THE KILLING HAND
MY BROTHER DRESSED IN GREY
KILLED IN THE CURSED WAR
HE DIED IN A SWAMP
WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ALL FOR

DADDY SANG BY THE FIRE A HYMN WE ALL HEARD BEFORE
WHEN A MANS AN OUTLAW YOU GET WHAT YOU ASK FOR
MAY THE SINS OF THE FATHER BE GIVEN TO THE SAND
TREAD DOWN THE WICKED JUST WHERE THEY STAND
FEAR AT MY BACK EAR TO THE TRACK
LISTEN FOR THE TRAIN

MY DADDY WOULD READ THE BIBLE TO COVER UP OUR SINS
HE'LL LEAD US IN THE MORNING THAT'S WHERE IT ALL BEGINS
THE DEVIL LIKES THE NITES QUIET IN THE LIGHT OF DAY
WE PLAY BY ALL HIS RULES WE KNOW WELL HAVE TO PAY

WE GATHER UP THE DAYS COUNT THEM ALL AT NIGHT
WHEN THE TIME HAS ALL RUN OUT
YOU CAN LIE DOWN OR YOU CAN FIGHT

WE ALL CHOOSE OUR PATHS THE STORIES ALL THE SAME
WHEN YOUR TIME HAS COME LISTEN FOR THE TRAIN
