Dale Watson — Runaway Train lyrics

Born like everyone with a slate as clean
Baby grew into a boy and started building steam
Boy learned how to blow it off in a dangerous kind of way
Well fellas here he comes that runaway train

Now hear his lonesome cry barrelin' down the track
Out of control his soul dressed in black
Sound to every man that's broken the chain
Rollin rollin rollin like a runaway train

It ain't easy to do your best when life comes at you fast
On his own so early on too young for such a task
Took the bull by the horn sometimes that bull was mean
And only at it stoking on that runaway train

Chorus

Married young and daddy soon his life was right on track
Something rumbled in his soul something that he lacked
He had to chase that melody that fueled a childhood dream
There ain't no holding back that runaway train

Chorus

Rollin rollin rollin like a runaway train
Hmmmmm I here that train a commin
Hmmmmm Hey Porter Ohh Porter
Hmmmmm I don't care if I do da do
