"Penny On The Train Track" lyrics

Penny On The Train Track

I'm just a penny on the train track
Waiting for my judgement day
Come on baby girl let me see those legs
Before I get flattened away

I wait
Yeah, I wait
For something good
For something great

Stopping in somebody's old home town
Gotta get that midnight meal
If you can't get behind your own life
Get behind the driving wheel

And go
Just go
Find a place
That you don't know

Ran into a friend just the other night
Got a badge, he's a local cop
Haven't seen that boy in over seven years
Since out of high school I dropped

I see
I see
All the things
That I should be

Oh baby dance with me

Even lucky man has a bad day
And pretty girl has a scar
After that train comes and takes me away
Pick up that guitar

And play
Just play
Play that rock
And roll for me

He's in the yard just washing his car
Thinking about his pretty wife
Making lemonade with the kitchen aid
Making him a perfect life

And it's grim
So dim
When you wish that you
Were just like him

I'm just a penny on the train track
Waiting for my judgement day
Come on baby girl let me see those legs
Before I get flattened away

I wait
I wait
For something good
For something great

I wait
Yeah, I wait
For something good
For something great

Yeah, I wait
Yeah, I wait
For something good
For something great

And I try
Oh I try
I can't stop
I don't know why
