Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well I broke down in E. St. Louis
On the Kansas City line
And I drunk up all my money
That I borrowed every time
Verse 2
And I fell down at the derby
And now the night's black as a crow
It was a train that took me away from here
But a train can't bring me home
Verse 3
What made my dreams so hollow
Was standing at the depot
With a steeple full of swallows
That could never ring the bell
Verse 4
And I come ten thousand miles away
With not one thing to show
Well it was a train that took me away from here
But a train can't bring me home
Verse 5
I remember when I left
Without bothering to pack
You know I up and left with
Just the clothes I had on my back
Verse 6
Now I'm sorry for what I've done
And I'm out here on my own
Well it was a train that took me away from
Here but a train can't bring me home
