Desperados Waiting For A Train Lyrics

Desperados Waiting For A Train (等待列车的亡命之徒) - Guy Clark

I played the Red River Valley

 

He'd sit in the kitchen and cry

 

Run his fingers through seventy years of livin'

 

"I wonder Lord has every well I've drilled gone dry "

 

We were friends me and this old man

Like desperados waitin' for a train

 

Desperados waitin' for a train

 

Well he's a drifter an' a driller of oil wells

 

And an old school man of the world

 

He taught me how to drive his car when he w's too drunk to

 

Oh and he'd wink and give me money for the girls

 

An' our lives were like some old Western movie

Like desperados waitin' for a train

 

Like desperados waitin' for a train

 

An' from the time that I could walk he'd take me with him

 

To a bar called the Green Frog Cafe

 

An' there was old men with beer guts and dominos

 

Oh an they're lying 'bout their lives while they played

 

An' I was just a kid that they all called his sidekick

Like desperados waitin' for a train

 

Like desperados waitin' for a train

 

One day I looked up and he's pushin' eighty

 

An' he's brown tobacco stains all down his chin

 

Well to me he's one of the heroes of this country

 

So why's he all dressed up like them old men

 

He's drinkin' beer and playin' Moon and Forty-two

 

Like a desperado waitin' for a train

 

Like a desperado waitin' for a train

 

An' then the day before he died I went to see him

 

I was grown and he was almost gone

 

So we just closed our eyes and dreamed us up a kitchen

 

And sang another verse to that old song

 

Come on Jack that son-of-a-b**ch is comin'

 

We're like desperados waitin' for a train

 

Like desperados waitin' for a train

 

Like desperados waitin' for a train

 

 

Like desperados waitin' for a train
