Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was standin' at the station,
ten to midnight in the rain
I was mindin' my own bus'ness,
waiting for that midnight train
Verse 2
Nobody in sight, starin' at my shoes,
I took out my paper to find me some good news
Mindin' my own bus'ness,
when the ticket man calls my name
Yeah, yeah, babe
Verse 3
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line
Verse 4
So I say, "If it ain't too much trouble,
when's the local out of town?"
His reply: "Two a.m."
If I'm leavin' local-bound
Verse 5
I can catch it in forty minutes,
if I want to grab the express
But the local trains are hard to come by,
this time of night, more or less
Listen, said
Verse 6
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line
Verse 7
So I stood for forty minutes,
it was raining and it was cold
When the express rolled down the track,
I did not care where it was gonna go
Yeah, yeah
Verse 8
He said
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
There ain't no midnight train
Comin' down the line
