This Lonely Train

This lonely train takes me to a lonely place
The lonely place is a lonely town
The lonely town’s full of empty space
And I am going down

Dust and pests and desert sand
Will greet me when I reach
No familiar face or helping hand
I’ll lie lonely on the beach

The worst is yet to come they say
A ball of fire in the sky
If I ever turn to walk away
No one would ask me why

This lonely train goes chugh chugh chugh
It’s the only noise I hear
No laughing child or crooked thug
No Dad, no dog, no deer

I must set down my pen alright
That’s all that I can write
This lonely train leaves behind the light
Towards the dark of night
