Ricky Skaggs — Ridin' That Midnight Train lyrics

No matter what I say or do
You're never satisfied
I've tried and tried so many times
I'm leavin' you now, goodbye

I'm ridin' on that midnight train
My head's a-hangin' low
These awful blues will follow me
Wherever I may go

Oh, why on earth was I ever born?
I'll never understand
To fall in love with a woman like you
In love with another man

I'm ridin' on that midnight train
My head's a-hangin' low
These awful blues will follow me
Wherever I may go

You broke the heart that trusted you
Why wasn't it made of stone?
I'm left in a world black as night
Yet I must travel on

I'm ridin' on that midnight train
My head's a-hangin' low
These awful blues will follow me
Wherever I may go

I'm ridin' on that midnight train
My head's a-hangin' low
These awful blues will follow me
Wherever I may go
