“Midnight Train” Lyrics

Now, listen just a minute while I sing this song
Don’tcha worry, baby, it won’t take long
Just about ready to draw the line
So don’t be surprised when I leave this time

Well, I’m goin’ north, and I’m goin’ south
I don’t want no more of your lyin’ mouth
I’m hittin’ the road, gonna ring some bells
Better know I can do it well

Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Losin’ all the money when it really isn’t funny, hun, ba-da-dum
Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Tell you what, baby, well, you better be movin’ on

Well, I really don’t know where I’m goin’ for sure
I don’t got a map, and it ain’t no tour
Just headin’ out to the open skies
Who knows? Might even die

Well, don’t you worry your pretty little head
’Cause you never gave a dang what I did or said
That’s why I’m packin’ to leave this place
Can’t stand to look at your cheatin’ face

Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Losin’ all the money when it really isn’t funny, hun, ba-da-dum
Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Tell you what, baby, well, you better be movin’ on

Well, you treated me like a little boy
And you played around like I was a toy
Guess you thought I’d have the blues
Look who’s cryin’, guess you lose

Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Losin’ all the money when it really isn’t funny, hun, ba-da-dum
Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Tell you what, baby, well, you better be movin’ on

Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Losin’ all the money when it really isn’t funny, hun, ba-da-dum
Midnight train, ramblin’, ramblin’
All night long, I’m a-gamblin’, gamblin’
Tell you what, baby, well, you better be movin’ on
He said, I’ve got time, better be movin’ on
Get out of here, better be movin’ on
Well, that’s all she wrote, you better be movin’ on
