As recorded by Rod McKuen: I've been away so long Fought a war that's come and gone Doesn't anybody know my name My sister's up and wed My Momma's took to bed Now my old dog Red's gone lame Please tell me if you can What time do the trains roll in Two-ten, six-eighteen Ten-forty-four The hedge is turnin' brown The house is fallin' down Doesn't anybody know my name The girl I left behind She's run off to Caroline I don't have to read a sign To know things ain't the same Please tell me if you can What time do the trains roll in Two-ten, six-eighteen Ten-forty-four You can't go far away On just a soldier's pay Doesn't anybody know my name Used to be when I could see Everybody wanted me Now nobody comes to see The blind man catch the train Please tell me if you can What time do the trains roll in Two-ten, six-eighteen Ten-forty-four ********** As recorded by Waylon Jennings: I've been away for so long Fought a war that's come and gone Doesn't anybody know my name My sister upped and wed Mom was sick and took to bed And my old dog Red's gone lame Please tell me if you can What time the trains roll in (Two-ten, six-eighteen) Ten-forty-four The old house is fallin' down There ain't no need in me a-hangin' round Doesn't anybody know my name The girl I left behind She's gone with a friend of mine I don't have to see a sign To know things ain't the same Please tell me if you can What time the trains roll in (Two-ten, six-eighteen) Ten-forty-four You can't get far away On just a soldier's pay Doesn't anybody know my name Used to be when I could see Everybody wanted me Guess nobody cares to see A blind man catch a train Please tell me if you can What time the trains roll in (Two-ten, six-eighteen) Ten-forty-four ********** As recorded by The Kingston Trio (under the title "Two-Ten, Six-Eighteen"): I've been away so long Fought a war that's come and gone Doesn't anybody know my name My sister's up and wed And mama's took to bed Doesn't anybody know my name Please tell me, if you can What time do the trains roll in Two-ten, six-eighteen, ten forty-four The hedge is turning brown And the fence is falling down Doesn't anybody know my name The girl I left behind Has gone to Caroline Doesn't anybody know my name Please tell me, if you can What time do the trains roll in Two-ten, six-eighteen, ten forty-four Fought that war across the sea Almost died to keep us free Doesn't anybody know my name Now I'm home and no one cares Seems that trouble's are only theirs Doesn't anybody know my name Please tell me, if you can What time do the trains roll in Two-ten, six-eighteen, ten forty-four Doesn't anybody know my name ********** (Transcriptions by Mel Priddle - November 2010) **********
