Greensky Bluegrass - Train Junkie Lyrics




Have you ever seen a hobo, a forgotten freight yard shadow?
Would you ever take your chances on a train?
'Cause when it comes to ridin', are you wastin' time decidin'
Are you jumpin' on, or jumpin' off again?

I was hot from North Dakota, on my way to Minnesota
And I had to take my chances on a train
Driver started rollin', that ol' whistles started blowin'
I was there, and then I was good as gone again
Don't you ever take your chances on a train

I won't be around forever, but I'm still a firm believer
That I gotta go rollin' down the track
A million miles behind me, a million more remind me
My better days, when more I'd understand
If I gotta go goin' down the track

I got caught between two places, and a couple tired old faces
They had to take their chances on a train
We went north through Minnesota, on a St. Paul Manitoba
We were headed off and hell bent once again
We had to take our chances on a train

Have you ever seen a hobo, a forgotten freight yard shadow?
Would you ever take your chances on a train?
'Cause when it comes to ridin', are you wastin' time decidin'
Are you jumpin' on, or jumpin' off again?
Did you ever take your chances on a train?
Would you ever take your chances on a train?
