Long Black Train

This song is by Allison Moorer and appears on the album Alabama Song (1998) and on the anthology The Definitive Collection (2005).

I've been walking these mean streets
Hard concrete beneath my feet
Ain't found a friendly face among the crowd
The city's like a Christmas tree
A light for every dreamer's dream
But it seems mine has finally burned out.

Long black train take me home
I've worn out my welcome here it's time to go
I have to face the music this just ain't where I belong
Long black train take me home.

I should've known I was mistaken
When I thought that I'd be making
A name for myself in Babylon
Though I've tried to do my best
The suit and ties are not impressed
So with what's left of my pride I'll carry on.

Long black train take me home
I've worn out my welcome here it's time to go
I have to face the music this just ain't where I belong
Long black train take me home.

I'm gonna trade my guitar for a ticket
Then climb aboard and ride you down the track
I know I'm licked but it's hard to admit it
Maybe some day you can bring me back

Long black train take me home
I've worn out my welcome here it's time to go
I have to face the music this just ain't where I belong
Long black train take me home.

Long black train take me home.
