Jerry Lee Lewis - Waiting for a Train (All Around the Watertank) Lyrics



All around the water tank

Waitin' for a train

I'm a thousand miles away from home

Sleeping in the rain


I walked up to a brakeman

Just to make a line of talk

He said, "Son if you've got money"

"I'll see that you don't walk"


Well, I haven't got a nickel

Not a penny can I show

Well, get off, get off, you railroad bum

He slammed the boxcar door


Well, he put me off in Texas

A state I dearly love

Wide open spaces all around me, Lord

The moon and stars above


My pocketbook is empty

My old heart is filled with pain

I'm a thousand miles away from home

And I'm waitin' for a train
