ABBA - Another Town, Another Train Lyrics




Day is dawning and I must go
You're asleep but still I'm sure you'll know
Why it had to end this way
You and I had a groovy time
But I told you somewhere down the line
You would have to find me gone
I just have to move along
Just another town, another train
Waiting in the morning rain
Lord give my restless soul a little patience
Just another town, another train
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations

When you wake I know you'll cry
And the words I wrote to say goodbye
They won't comfort you at all
But in time you will understand
That the dreams we dreamed were made of sand
For a no-good bum like me
To live is to be free

Just another town, another train
Waiting in the morning rain
Look in my restless soul, a little patience
Just another town, another train
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations
Guess I will spend my life in railway stations

[repeat and fade]

ABBA Another Town, Another Train Comments
  1. Temenuzhka Milanova

    Need a happiness pill - take ABBA.

  2. Morning Sky

    I am a big fan of ABBA, but the comments here are laughable. This song is about as cringeworthy as it gets. Written and recorded at a time when the group was still trying to find their way musically, Bjorn's vocals are insipid. Thankfully, their songwriting developed very quickly and they realized that the girls should be the real focus in terms of delivering the songs. ABBA fanatics are a bit like the Beatles equivalents, with their steadfast refusal to accept that not everything they touched turned to gold.

  3. Олег Тимофеев

    Как поздно у нас поняли эту стратегию.

  4. Afolabi Adebajo

    ABBA a most wonderful gift to mankind.

  5. Blair Stewart

    A great song sadly neglected. Should have been on ABBA Gold to represent their first album.

  6. Наталья Дейнека

    Супер!! Супер!!

  7. John Gowan

    This is the way you spend your time moving from one town to another one.⚡️💯💯💯💯💯💯💯🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  8. paul barlow

    I think it may have been the great swedish no bra look that made me love Agnetha

  9. Rina Willemse

    Still powerful, still beautiful, still capture my heart like no other group

  10. paul barlow

    love love love love agnetha always and forever xx

  11. MartinMilnerUK

    Love the picture of them at Waterloo station in London.

  12. BAKTHISARAN E R

    They take your imagination to a very different level

  13. maria honess

    From the ring ring album

  14. Margaret Hamutenya

    The music that will last.

  15. Terry C.

    Bjorn going back to his Hootenanny Singers roots for this one, but the Hootenanny Singers didn't have Agnetha and Frida. With Agnetha and Frida singing the chorus too, it's even MORE awesome.

  16. Hello Skinny

    The "Ring Ring" album had already good songs, but I'm sure that "Another Town, Another Train" was their first truly Great song.

  17. Luana Lua de Amor & de Desejos Ardentes

    Muito agradecida por esta música tão linda e gostosa!

  18. Astrid Görgens

    From the Album Honey Honey

    Terry C.

    Actually, from Ring, Ring, their debut album. Honey, Honey was a song title, not album...on their second album, Waterloo.

  19. Michael Gretzky

    Just another underrated ABBA song! : )

  20. Philip HENRY

    Beautiful and moving song, I didn't know it.
    A painful break, a separation as we all know.... That’s life.

  21. Eric Casini

    The song is so beautiful and happy you don’t realize it’s a break up song.

  22. Margaret Mkangala

    Wow, it is surprise to me to get this song. I love this song so so much

  23. Alexander Brookes

    Released as a single this song would reached no1

  24. Alexander Brookes

    Another song that wasn't released as a single

  25. Francis Kintu

    Who can dispute the song writing genius of Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson? No - one!

  26. Chinedum Aranotu

    Abba group is the greatest of all time. Their songs are timeless.

  27. victor1978100

    Very simple song, but very beautiful melody

  28. M R

    This sounds like Bjorns first band
    Hootenanny Singers

    What I love about ABBA is there were 2 hot ladies, and no smut, they weren't whores, on stage

  35. Jane Rodr

    How come they all sound like the Archie. Lv u guys🤣😘

  36. Janett Grady

    Love the song. Love ABBA. ABBA, the absolute best...ever. Just listen.

  37. Flavia Vassallo

    SUBLIME!!

  38. Erik Andersson

    ABBA!!!

  39. egstak raghu

    People were more humble and civilized during ABBA days

    Aspen Robinson

    These were the days we still lived and had some structure. Today its a free for all and we are even too afraid to punish out own child . We have ruined the land and people are more in their own groups and labeled than ever before . This combined with technology in 50 years it will be taken to depopulate and symbolic to handmaid tale or kill each other.

  40. 万俊彦

    ★ Happy Birthday to Björn Ulvaeus !

  41. emeka sylvester

    This song is exceptionally a beautiful classic rendition!.

  42. solomos solomoy

    sverige full of muslims now, who thought that in the 70s? if svensk democrats would have warned about that this time, everybody would have called them "racists". now we see this warning would not have been wrong. especially malmö with "rosengarden" is an arabic city. svensk people how could u allow that all???? cyprus is greek - turks out.

  43. Robson Paes

    muito apaixonado por Agnetha

  44. MrGallan50

    untouchable melodies

  56. Peter Junge

    Lesser known but one of my favourites ofABBA

  57. popcult

    Great fitting visuals for this pleasant mid tempo ABBA song.

  58. Hunt Ley

    How anyone could dislike this is beyond me.....

  59. Roland Njayou

    Toutes ma jeunesse refait surface 😁👫

  60. Simon Pinlaw

    I might pick this song to be played at my funeral. Abba mean so much to me, and this is one song I never tire of listening to.

    Aspen Robinson

    You really should have instructions to play this at your funeral. What a beautiful send off .

  61. Trash Trade Terror

    TTT (don't abuse people for gain without trading the safe reasons haters want to get the power back to harm them simply)

    This hasn't nothing to do with this age/world/time featured: actually it only has to do with it: you always did and kept the right thing - love. Lucky, lucky world. - Moved on and up, had to... needed a friend. Thank you!... & Thank you.

  62. DINORA THEREZINHA

    EU TE AMO ABBA!

  63. Tanya Watkins

    The cloths they are wearing takes you back in time😊

  64. Atmostfear

    I wanna cry

  65. Alf Berghök

    Jätteskön låt som jag missat i många år.

  66. Dhomz Lamla

    One of my favorite song ever!!!!

  67. johan lawmte

    ahh!! it is so beautifull

  68. sdrawkcab tleps si eman lennahc sihT

    Way before my time but they were above theirs.

  69. Terry C.

    Think it's safe to say ABBA didn't have to "spend (their) life in railway stations". LOL :)

  70. Christina Zopari

    loved this song

  71. Gusdocs1

    Bjorn was a great singer as well as being part of the best song writers of all time

    Aspen Robinson

    Yes, I agree , but 90% of Abba songs are a woman needing a man , can't live without a man or mourning a man...women very dependent on the man in nearly Abba songs .

    Janett Grady

    Aspen...So what? That's the way it used to be and the way it should be, we women need men and we know why. We used to be in charge, on a pedestal until the Politically Correct assholes came along. Now look at things, we have an equal right to be miserable, an equal right to be drafted, an equal right to fend for ourselves with no men to protect and take care of us. Romantic love has been replaced with nothing more than a lousy fuck....Et cetera. ABBA was right on.

  72. Veikko Oinonen

    I don't remember was this first song iheard from Abba..or was it People need Love

    Terry C.

    People Need Love was the first song ever recorded by ABBA as we know them (when Agnetha and Frida officially joined Bjorn and Benny as a band) in 1972.
    But, they weren't known as ABBA then yet. They were known as Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha, and Anni-Frid. They (their manager, Stig Andersen and the guys) coined them ABBA before their debut album came out later that year.

  73. Vydyanath Subramanian

    ABBA , one of the best troupe.

  74. Jaqueline Crute

    We never get music like this today , fantastic

  75. Ian Strange

    I've always adored Bjorn's clearly enunciated vocals on this track.😎

  76. Christina Zopari

    I could go on listening to this song

  77. Vera Clair Teixeira

    Amo ABBA

  78. Andrew Akhonya

    This is a band I admired most in the world, when I hear there music I feel great.

    Shelly Weiers

    You and me both Andrew

    emeka sylvester

    Well spoken brother

    Barry Cole

    I feel you

    Dustshoe

    The words they sing ring out loud and clear. Today's songs I find are largely indecipherable, even when sung by supposedly talented singers. And what is the point of that?

  79. Terry C.

    Another ABBA tune, another ABBA classic.

  80. Robert KM Pilemalm

    Sad story!

  81. Andres Karel

    one of the greatest things about ABBA is that even the underknown songs are terrific

    Bryan Johnston

    Yep just like the Beatles their throwaway songs were so good to .. that is the sign of great song writing , great arrangements great singing and musicianship

    Hello Skinny

    @Bryan Johnston Not only that, their quick musical evolution and their consistent impact in popular culture is another sign of their brillance

    Dustshoe

    Lesser known.

    resireg

    @Bryan Johnston and that Album was before they were famous, so only a lucky few could listen to those songs

    Martin Devadason

    Is it because the lyrics of ABBA are an expression of our moments in life?

  82. Jan Nielsen

    Et ikke så kendt nummer, men for mig et af de bedste af ABBA's store musikproduktion. Jeg voksede som så mange andre op med deres musik i 70'erne.

  83. Roland Njayou

    Abba le groupe qui ne degoute pas.

  84. Stefansson 58

    Timeless

  85. Nico Darani

    Bei tempi degli ABBA, ero giovane

  86. Royal Enfield 500

    Abba songs saved me from suicide

    Tim Penfield

    don't try suicide.

    Aspen Robinson

    @MDS I hope it would take more Megafuckingdeath for me to blow my brains out you pussy .

    Philip HENRY

    I totally agree with you.
    Abba’s songs give us the feeling of being understood in the things we live, painful or not.
    That brings a lot of comfort.
    And I hope you’re feeling better now.
    Best wishes to you.

    resireg

    @MDS not everybody has access to a gun, besides, some people survive self shooting in the head

    Alexander Brookes

    Thank God for this

  87. Claude Lombana

    Abba never composed a bad or lousy  song or melody.  These four will be forever in my files for me to enjoy and listen to them whenever I miss their songs and melodies.

    allan jarvis

    they did we just never heard them

    Gusdocs1

    King Kong was very bad song

    volkerysilvia

    @Gusdocs1 Aye, that it was

  88. THE CLARENCES

    ABBA rules! Period.
    xoxo The Clarences

  89. MrGallan50

    makes my day every time

  90. sct353

    Much as I enjoy compilation sets such as 'Gold' the first 'Greatest Hits' (Park Bench) album had a more eclectic mix of songs on it of which this is one of the highights.

    Terry C.

    Just depends what "era" you liked best. Basically, Greatest Hits I was pre-Dancing Queen, and Gold was post-Dancing Queen, which is really when they were in their prime. For the record, I love both.

  91. Nigger466

    Swedish people (swedish!) are the most beautiful people in the World!

    edd herring

    Swedes?

    Fuckaroo

    yes they are

    Nicholas Davies

    Danish a very close second 👍😉

    Janett Grady

    Nicholas...Second, maybe, but not close. We're talking ABBA, right? Ha.

  92. LordMontystink

    Bloody good that such gorgeous girls should go to such bloody nice chaps, what?

  93. cum dot com

    I can't help to think that nordic people are so incredibly beautiful...

    Tim Penfield

    @Strange Boy But it is not as if they were raped, change is inevitable, I miss blonds to but, change is change.

    Strange Boy

    @Tim Penfield - Change is NOT inevitable in this case. They can simply close their borders and change won't happen. Whites can preserve ourselves easily. All we need to do is to stop being afraid of being called racist by non-whites and close our borders. Europe belongs to us and blacks, Arabs and Asians don't have a right to come and live and breed in our countries.

    Aspen Robinson

    @Strange Boy Exactly !!

    Bryan Johnston

    I met a Norwegian girl in Corfu 20 odd years ago .. the first person I had ever met from Norway she was not only incredibly beautiful but such a lovely person as well .. nothing happened it was just one of those magic moments that happened in my life and I will never forget it .. I can see her now still as I write this

    Strange Boy

    @Bryan Johnston Are you white or black?

    Never ever be another ABBA!

  97. Viola Thames

    Day is dawning and I must go
    You're asleep but still I'm sure you'll know
    Why it had to end this way
    You and I had a groovy time
    But I told you somewhere down the line
    You would have to find me gone
    I just have to move along
    Just another town, another train
    Waiting in the morning rain
    Lord give my restless soul a little patience
    Just another town, another train

    Guess I will spend my life in railway stations
    Guess I will spend my life in railway stations

    Guess I will spend my life in railway stations

    MDS

    BASICALLY this dude used this girl for SEX then had grown tired of fucking the same old piss hole so he decided to move on

  98. Philip HENRY

    It's just a little difficult to believe is really ABBA !!  At their beginnings, sure..
