Trains - solo live!


Listen Here: Here

The song was originally recorded on my 1995 eponymous album and one of my personal favorites. Can you name all the old movie references? I think this recording was from a solo show in Pittsburgh ten years ago. It's bit rough around the edges, but I think it tells the story.

You can get a signed CD (with your name!) at Jillsobule.com/store

TRAINS

Tie me to the track with my ear to the rail But wait for the very last moment to save me Or we could fight on top like a Western, jump from car to car Not noticing the tunnel is approaching And when were in the tunnel, you become another person And we lay down and let the darkness enfold us Trains, I wish I was on that train I wish I was on that train with you Trains, there's something about a train That always makes me think of you On the Peking to Paris, you're a sculptor, I'm an heiress I'm running from my husband, you're running from the law But there's agents at the border so I hide you in my cabin Of course I let you spend the night not knowing who you are And when I let you out, you become another person And we lay down and let the darkness enfold us Trains, I wish I was on that train I wish I was on that train with you Trains, there's something about a train That always makes me think of you, think of you Wish I was on that train Wish I was on that train Wish I was on that train with you We're two hobos on the box car, you and your five o'clock shadow Me and my harmonica and a duffel on a stick Or you're a soldier coming back from the war I'm the lover waiting on the platform It's so steamy you're not sure it's me waving And when I close my eyes, I become another person And we lay down and let the darkness enfold us

Trains, I wish I was on that train

I wish I was on that train with you
