How I Wish My Train Would Come

Lyrics: Luther Dickinson/North Mississippi Allstars
Music: Luther Dickinson/North Mississippi Allstars

Played by Luther Dickinson with Phil Lesh & Friends in April 2013.

It's so hard to struggle, it's hard to survive
It's a struggle to stay alive
I keep fighting on till we arrive

I try to believe I will be received
Lord knows I'm ready to leave
Deliver me, I'm ready to leave
Please deliver me

How I wish my train would come
And carry me back home
How I wish my train would come

As you can tell, I'm not from here
Got to get the hell away from here
Bid you a fare thee well

Dark is the night, cold is the ground
No one to call friend can be found
No one to lend a helping hand can be found
No one gives a damn

How I wish my train would come
And carry me back home

The rain pouring down
From the heavens above
Is cold as a mother's heart

I talk about trouble, it's my only friend
I can smell the trouble blowing in the wind
Only thing I put my faith in

I try to believe, It's hard to believe
There's a home out there for me
Please deliver me, I'm ready to leave
Please deliver me, I'm ready to leave
Please deliver me, I'm ready to leave

How I wish my train would come
And carry me back home
How I wish my train would come (please deliver me)
And carry me back home
How I wish my train would come (I'm ready to leave)
And carry me back home
How I wish my train would come (please deliver me)
And carry me back home
How I wish my train would come (I'm ready to leave)
And carry me back home
How I wish my train would come (please deliver me)
And take me back home
