lyrics

New Train

Can't keep you on the main line no more, darlin'
You're much too strong a drug for me
I can't sleep at night and I'm achin' for a fight
Thought I may as well come clean

You're like a drug, you fill my brain
Everybody's talkin' 'bout that New Train
Like a drug - drive me insane
Everybody jump up on that New Train

Train's pulling out in the cold clear night
Sinner, won't you jump on board
Train's disappearing, whistles out of hearing
Takes us to a just reward

It's like a drug - it kills my pain
Everybody's talkin' 'bout that New Train
Surrealistic colors paint the window pane
Everybody jump up on that New Train

Darkness fills with light and black is really white
Checkerboard station tile floor
This small town's a strain, I'm waitin' on that train
Sinner, won't you jump on board?

© 2010 Nancy K. Dillon
It's a freedom train; sinners, won't you shout?
Everybody's talkin' 'bout that New Train
It's a freedom train, no shadow of a doubt
Everybody jump on board that New Train

Nancy K Dillon Seattle, Washington

On her album, Roses Guide to Time Travel, Nancy K. Dillon maps the road West; the dusty highways that conjure up images like Kerouac's road trips, traveling dustbowl carnivals, and free-spirited 70s hipsters. Inspired by Oklahoma & Texas troubadours Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Kevin Welch, Dillon's songs are short stories about characters that populate true American life. ... more
