    "Just Like This Train" Lyrics

    Joni Mitchell

    I'm always running behind the time
    Just like this train
    Shaking into town
    With the brakes complainin'

    I used to count lovers like railroad cars
    I counted them on my side
    Lately I don't count on nothing
    I just let things slide

    The station master's shuffling cards
    Boxcars are banging in the yards

    Jealous lovin'll make you crazy
    If you can't find your goodness
    Cause you lost your heart

    I went looking for a cause
    Or a strong cat without claws
    Or any reason to resume
    And I found this empty seat
    In this crowded waiting room
    Everybody waiting

    Old man sleeping on his bags
    Women with that teased up kind of hair
    Kids with the jitters in their legs
    And those wide wide open stares
    And the kids got cokes & chocolate bars
    There's a thin man smoking a fat cigar
    Jealous lovin'll make you crazy

    If you can't find your goodness
    Cause you've lost your heart

    What are you going to do now
    You've got no one to give your love to

    Well I've got this berth & this roll down blind
    I've got this fold up sink
    And these rocks
    And these cactus going by
    And a bottle of German wine to drink
    Settle down into the clickety clack
    With the clouds & the stars to read
    Dreaming of the pleasure I'm gonna have
    Watching your hairline recede, my vain darling

    Watching your hair & clouds & stars
    I'm rocking away in a sleeping car
    Cause this jealous lovin's bound to make me
    I can't find my goodness
    I lost my heart
    Oh sour grapes
    Because I lost my heart
