​Train of Gold

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the 2001 reissue of the album Secret Messages (1983).

I saw her there from across the street,
She was dressed in black
And when she moved, she moved to a beat, like a Cadillac
She rode a train, train, train, train, train of gold.

She was a woman of suspicious ways,
Never saw daylight
And in her room, she sat and passed the days
And she'd creep out at night
She rode a train, train, train, train, train of gold.

Train of gold, train of gold
It took me so long to find out I was wrong
Now I wait for her in the night.

Looked through a window saw a velvet sky,
A shade of green
A violin was playing soft and sweet,
Like it was a dream
She rode a train, train, train, train, train of gold.

Train of gold, train of gold
It took me so long to find out I was wrong
Now I wait for her in the night.

Train of gold, train of gold
I don't believe her, it just couldn't be her
I can't get it out of my mind.

She rode a train, train, train, train, train of gold
She rode a train, train, train, train, train of gold.

Train, train of gold
Train, train of gold
She rode a train...
