BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN lyrics : "Downbound Train"

I had a job, I had a girl
I had something going mister in this world
I got laid off down at the lumber yard

Our love went bad, times got hard
Now I work down at the carwash
Where all it ever does is rain

Don't you feel like you're a rider on a downbound train

She just said "Joe I gotta go

We had it once we ain't got it any more"
She packed her bags left me behind
She bought a ticket on the Central Line

Nights as I sleep, I hear that whistle whining
I feel her kiss in the misty rain
And I feel like I'm a rider on a downbound train


Last night I heard your voice
You were crying, crying, you were so alone

You said your love had never died
You were waiting for me at home
Put on my jacket, I ran through the woods

I ran till I thought my chest would explode
There in the clearing, beyond the highway
In the moonlight, our wedding house shone

I rushed through the yard, I burst through the front door
My head pounding hard, up the stairs I climbed
The room was dark, our bed was empty

Then I heard that long whistle whine
And I dropped to my knees, hung my head and cried


Now I swing a sledge hammer on a railroad gang
Knocking down them cross ties, working in the rain
Now don't it feel like you're a rider on a downbound train
