And if I have to go will you remember me?
Or will you find someone else while I’m away?

There’s nothing for me in this world full of strangers;
it’s all someone else’s idea.
I don’t belong here and you can’t go with me.
You’ll only slow me down.

Until I send for you, don’t wear your hair that way.
If you cannot be true I’ll understand.

Tell all the others you hold in your arms,
I said I’d come back for you.
I’ll leave my jacket to keep you warm.
That’s all that I can do.

Nobody, Nobody
will ever love you
the way I could love you
cause nobody is that strong
love is bitter sweet
and life’s treasures deep
but no one can keep
a love that’s gone wrong

Nobody, Nobody
will ever love you
the way I could love you
cause nobody’s that strong
cause nobody’s that strong

Nobody, Nobody
will ever love you
the way I could love you
cause nobody is that strong
you’ve had many lovers
you’ll have many others
but they’ll only just break
your poor heart in two

Nobody, Nobody
will ever love you
the way I could love you
cause nobody’s that strong
cause nobody’s that strong

Well when you ain’t got nobody, anybody looks nice
Don’t take much to make you stop and look twice
And it’s either feast or famine, I’ve found out that it’s true
And I’m hungry as a bull dog, baby how about you

And when you ain’t got no big mama, all the mamas look hot
And when lovin’ is you weakness, your just bound to get caught
And the story never changes, history tells it so plain
And I’ll be your Dick, honey, if you’ll just be my Jane

And when you ain’t got nobody, anybody looks nice
It don’t take much to make you stop and look twice
And it’s either feast or famine, I’ve found out that it’s true
And I’m hungry as a bull dog, baby how about you, baby how about you

There’s a place I know where the train goes slow
Where sinners can be washed in the blood of the lamb
There’s a river by the trestle, oh by sinner’s grove
Down where the willow and the dogwood grows

Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

You can hear the whistle; you can hear the bell
From the halls of heaven to the gates of hell
And there’s room for the foresaken if you’re there on time
You’ll be washed of all your sins and all of your crimes

Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

There’s a golden moon that shines up through the mist
And I know that your name will be on that list
There’s no eye for an eye, there’s no tooth for a tooth
I saw Judas Iscariot carrying John Wilkes Booth

Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

So if you live in darkness, if you live in shame
All of the passengers will be treated the same
And old Humpty Jackson and Gyp the Blood
Will sing And Charlie Whitman is holding on to Dillinger’s wings

They’re down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

So if you’ve lost all your hope; you lost all your faith
I know you will be cared for, I know you will be safe
And all the shameful, and all of the whores
And even the soldier who pierced the heart of the Lord

Is down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

Well, I’ve never asked forgiveness; I’ve never said a prayer
I’ve never given of myself and I’ve never truly cared
I’ve hurt the ones who loved me, and I’m still raising Cain
I’ve taken the low road and if you’ve done the same
Meet me down there by the train

Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes slow

Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there by the train
Down there where the train goes…

Down there where the train goes slow
Oooh-o-ooh
