Big City Train

GWEN STEFANI "No Doubt"
Can you hear that whistle Loud clackety-clack It's calling me The station is where it's at It's coming again now Chuggin' down that track Just check your records Got all my bags packed You'll always find me waiting for that train to come through Come get me, take me, to the land where my dreams come true This time I'll board that train It won't be long Check the label on my baggage Destination in my song Talk to the conductor Saved up my fare Yakety-yak for a while CHOO CHOO! Chorus: Hurry grab my luggage Hurry grab my bags It seems the locomotive Has been taken another track A penny brought on by mischief A penny, a form of cash Has been placed upon the railway We are destined to be a smash!

Across The Border

ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA "Out Of The Blue"
ACROSS THE BORDER I ve been workin' so hard, baby, tryin' to get to you. I'm gonna be there soon because In the heat of the day many miles away when the sun is beating down upon the main street I'll be waiting here at the station, I gotta move down the line. They'll be dancin' and singin' and doin' their thing and they'll be rockin' and rollin' until the day is done. You know I got to make the deadline. I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh. If I don't get to the border then I'll write. The Mardi Gras will be blowing strong and the people dancing all across the city. I'm leaving here tonight, I gotta move down the line. I'm gonna catch a ride on the nine-o-five, I'm gonna ride the rail until we reach the morning, maybe three or four hundred miles. I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh. If I don't get to the border then I'll write. When the wind is blowing softly through the streets of a little town and the music's playin you're waiting somewhere over the horizon. I gotta get that southbound train tonight, ooh. If I don't get to the border then I'll write. - Jeff Lynne

Mean Eyed Cat

JOHNNY CASH "Unchained"
I gave my woman half my money at the general store, I said, "Now buy a little groceries and don't spend no more." But she paid ten dollars for a ten cent hat, And bought some store-bought cat food for that mean-eyed cat. When I woke up this mornin' and I turned my head, There wasn't a cotton pickin' thing on her side of the bed. I found a little ol' note, where her head belonged. It said, "Dear John, honey, baby, I'm long gone." When I heard a whistle blowin' and the big wheels a-turnin', I was scared as I could be. I put on my overalls and I headed to town. Gonna bring her back with me. I asked the man down at the station if he'd seen her there. I told him all about her pretty eyes and long, blonde hair. He spit his tobacco, said, "I'll be dad blamed, I believe I did see her leavin' on the east-bound train." I bought a round-trip ticket on the east bound train, I was broke as I could be, But when I come back, I gotta buy another ticket, Gonna bring her back with me. Well, I got off the train somewhere in Arkansas, And I worked up the guts to call my mother-in-law, She said, "I'll tell you where she is, if you act right. She's workin' four-to-twelve at Trucker's World tonight." Well, when I walked in she saw me and she took off her apron, And she grabbed her goin'-home hat She bought a ticket with her tips. Now we're curled up on the sofa, Me and her and that mean-eyed cat.

Almost Fed Up With The Blues

JOHN HIATT "Beneath This Gruff Exterior"
I wake up with my head and hand I wish i was another man 'Cause i almost fed up with the blues I think about the kitchen sink Then i just shudder to think 'Cause I'm almost fed up with the Blues [Chorus 1:] If it don't let up, gonna get up And get my life set up 'Cause I'm almost fed up with the Blues Have some coffee, 'fore i call it quits Might even put jam on my biscuit 'Cause i'm almost fed up with the Blues There's a woman, a can, and an bank note due But I'm gonna leave that up to you 'Cause i'm almost fed up with the Blues If i get up they'll knock me down again But what are you gonna do, my friend When i'm almost fed up with the Blues [Chorus 2:] If it don't kill me, it thrills me But somebody always bills me And i'm almost fed up with the Blues It's a gut check, a train wreck With all of the usual suspects And i'm almost fed up with the Blues If these blues don't stop hurtin' me Its curtains for my misery 'Cause i'm almost fed up with the Blues Might get a job, or join a club 'Cause buddy i've whittled it down to the nub And 'Cause i'm almost fed up with the Blues [Chorus 2:] If it don't kill me, it thrills me But somebody always bills me And i'm almost fed up with the Blues It's a gut check, a train wreck With all of the usual suspects And i'm almost fed up with the Blues

Make It Back

JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS "Unvarnished"
There's lightning in the sky And the houses are on fire The sun is getting cold And the river's getting higher So I keep moving on I'm watching where I'm driving I'm staying right on coast I'm taking all of my things [Chorus:] I hope this train Don't fall off the track Cause I gotta make it back Yea yea I hope this train Don't fall off the track Cause I, I gotta make it back So much is in my path And the preachers right before me But yesterday has passed Committed to my memory So what else can I say You're doing what you're giving And I'm fighting everyday I'm loving and I'm leaving [Chorus:] And I hope this train Don't fall off the track Cause I, I gotta make it back Yea yea I hope this train Don't fall off the track Cause I, I gotta make it back I'm on my way Felt the wind at my back Rolling down the track [Solo] Now I tell myself But baby have no fear Cause changes what you make it And home is getting near So close that I can taste it [Chorus:] I know this train Won't fall off the track Cause I, I'm gonna make it back Yea yea I know this train Won't fall off the track Cause I, I'm gonna make it back Yea I, I'm gonna make it back
