Train Whistle Cry
Lyrics by D. Geer



Verse 1
This life leaves me empty
Like a hungry, poor child
And this need keeps me awake at night
In a pain I can’t describe

Chorus
Oh well my heart it breaks
When I hear her name
and that old train whistle cries
And so do I

Verse 2
This life pulls you under
For no reason, without rhyme
Love is hurt that goes by a different name
‘Cuz they all turn out alike

Chorus
Oh well my heart it breaks
When I hear her name
and that old train whistle cries
And so do I

Bridge
Well the loneliness it teaches me, how to get along in life
And that cold road it showed me, I’ll be fine

Chorus
This life nearly killed me
When it hung me out to dry
Oh this need in me, don’t leave easily
Memories fade at the speed of time

Chorus
Oh well my heart it breaks
When I hear her name
and that old train whistle cries
And so do I

Chorus
Oh well my heart it breaks
When I hear her name
and that old train whistle cries
And so do I

And so, do I

And so do I
