    Lyrics

    (Dan Penn - Spooner Oldham)

    Down at the railroad station
    My suitcase settin' by my side
    Got no high hopes of leaving
    I'm just watching the trains go by
    Watching the trains go by.

    Lawyer Jabob's wife she is expecting and he wonders why in blazes
    How his wife could come to blame now they tried so many times before
    Walking back down this dusty farmroad my thirsty mind is high and dry
    One more day down at the station watching the trains go by.

    Down at the railroad station
    My suitcase settin' by my side
    Got no high hopes of leaving
    I'm just watching the trains go by
    Watching the trains go by.

    Papa's working at the coal mines mama's lying sick in bed
    They'd be better off without me one less mouth to be fed
    Younger brother John is in the jailhouse down on the woodfarm chopping wood
    I stayed around and tried to change him don't look like I done no good.

    Down at the railroad station
    My suitcase settin' by my side
    Got no high hopes of leaving
    I'm just watching the trains go by
    Watching the trains go by.

    Down at the railroad station
    My suitcase settin' by my side
    Got no high hopes of leaving
    I'm just watching the trains go by
    Watching the trains go by...
