It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes A Train To Cry lyrics

Well, I ride on a mailtrain, babe

Can't buy a thrill

Well, I've been up all night

Leanin' on the window sill

Well, if I die

On top of the hill

And if I don't make it

You know my baby will.


Don't the moon look good, mama

Shinin' through the trees ?

Don't the brakeman look good, mama

Ragging down the "Double E" ?

Don't the sun look good

Goin' down over the sea ?

Don't my gal look fine

When she's comin' after me ?


Now the wintertime is coming

The windows are filled with frost

I went to tell everybody

But I could not get across

Well, I wanna be your lover, baby

I don't wanna be your boss

Don't say I never warned you

When your train gets lost.
