Strangers On A Train

Lyrics: Battin, Fowley
Music: Battin, Fowley

I'm [behind] the lines like in the good old days
Rode the starlight special, there was no other way
Playing one-eyed jacks when you got on board
My heartbeat stopped, have mercy Lord

And the Colorado heat kept killing me
[It my four] in the skies
Saw the face of a [deathless] stranger
When I gazed into your eyes

No other luck, I didn't say a thing
Had on my leather boots and diamond rings
All you need is nerves, so the story goes
But when I saw you move, my body [blows]

And I stood there, wondering about your life
Are you woman or mystery
Are you someone else's wife
It's sure to [be] for me

And I'm sorry I never loved you
We were strangers on a train
Someday we'll fall in love
When we pass this way again

And the Colorado heat kept killing me
[It my four] in the skies
Saw the face of a [deathless] stranger
When I gazed into your eyes

Sorry I never loved you
We were strangers on a train
Someday we'll fall in love
When we pass this way again

Someday we'll fall in love
When we pass this way again

Two strangers, strangers, strangers on the midnight train
Two strangers, strangers, strangers on the midnight train
Two strangers, strangers, strangers on the midnight train
Two strangers, strangers, strangers on the midnight train
[etc]
