MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH TRAINS (Dolly Parton) Merle Haggard - 1974 Ev'rytime I hear the sound of a train Comin' down that railroad track I get that faraway look in my eye And I'd like to throw my hammer down And take off to some distant town And not even take the time to say goodbye I've got to think about my babies About my job and my ol' lady And how much she'd miss me if I's gone And I love them more than anything But I got this feelin' near by trains And some other wish I's on that train and gone That train keeps a-rollin' down the track Bringin' my old mem'ries back Makin' hobo blood boil in my veins Revivin' my old love affair with trains (Instrumental Break) The nights ain't never long enough My wife keeps sayin', "You get up Or you'll be late to work and miss your ride" I grab my dinner bucket up And jump on the back of Joe's pickup truck And I wonder if I'll jump that train tonight And it wasn't long ago that I was free To jump that train and ride But I gave it up to be a family man And I don't suppose I'll ever go But when I hear that whistle blow I think of my ol' love affair again That train keeps comin' down the track Bringin' my old mem'ries back Makin' the hobo blood boil in my veins Revivin' my old love affair with trains That train keeps comin' down the track Bringin' my old mem'ries back Makin' the hobo blood boil in my veins Revivin' my old love affair with trains
