The Eagles – Train Leaves Here This Morning

The Eagles - Train Leaves Here This Morning



From their debut album (1972); co-written by Bernie Leadon and Gene Clark.

I lost ten points just for being in the right place
At exactly the wrong time
I looked right at the facts there,
but I may as well have been completely blind
So, if you see me walking all alone
Don’t look back, I’m just on my way back home
There’s a train leaves here this morning,
and I don’t know, what I might be on
She signed me to a contract,
baby said it would All be so lifelong
I looked around then for a reason
When there wasn’t something more to blame it on
But, if time makes a difference while we’re gone
Tell me now, and I won’t be hanging on
There’s a train leaves here this morning
And I don’t know, what I might be on
1320 North Columbus was the address
That I wrote down on my sleeve
I don’t know just what she wanted
Might have been that it was getting time to leave
And I watched as the smoker passed it on
And I laughed when the joker said, “lead on.”
‘Cause there’s a train leaves here this morning
And I don’t know, what I might be on
And there’s train leaves here this morning
And I don’t know, what I might be on
