This song is by John Hammond and appears on the album Wicked Grin (2001).

This song is a cover of "2:19" by ​Tom Waits.
I lost everything I had in the twenty nine flood
Barn was buried beneath a mile of mud
Now, I'm down to nothing but the whistle and the steam
My baby's leaving town on the two nineteen

Now there's a fella been preaching about hell and damnation
Bouncing off the walls at the Grand Central Station
I treated her bad, I treated her mean
My baby's leaving town on the two nineteen

I said hey, hey, I don't know what to do
Hey, hey, I will remember you
Hey, hey, I don't know what to do
My baby's leaving town on the two nineteen

Now I've always been puzzled about the yin and the yang
Come out in the wash, but it always leaves a stain
Sturm and the drang, the luster and the sheen
My baby's leaving town on the two nineteen

I said hey, hey, I don't know what to do
Hey, hey, I will remember you
Hey, hey, I don't know what to do
My baby's leaving town on the two nineteen

Toss the baby with the water, and the preacher stole the bride
Sent her out for a bottle, but when she come back inside
She didn't bring my whiskey, she didn't bring my gin
She had a hat full of feathers and a wicked grin

I said hey, hey, I don't know what to do
Hey, hey, I will remember you
Hey, hey, I don't know what to do
My baby's leaving town on the two nineteen

On the train you get smaller, as you get farther away
The roar covers everything you wanted to say
Was that a raindrop in the corner of your eye?
Were you drying your nails or waving goodbye?

I said: hey, hey, I will remember you
Hey, hey, I don't know what to do
Hey, hey, I will remember you
My baby's leaving town on the two nineteen
