the stone foxes – passenger train lyrics

Loading...

you say i’m an evil man
for stealin’ from a p-ssenger train
but have mercy on this ol’ boy
i sweat that i can explain
i took the diamond, from the safe of your soul
i dug deep and wide and put it down in a hole
i put it down there so n-body would know
that i tried to turn back but i couldn’t let go

[chorus]
times were hard, they brought me down
at least i can say that i tried
well i ain’t that bad, well i ain’t that good
i just did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by
though it wasn’t long ago
you said i would do what i done
that i’d bear the pain of the p-ssenger train
and live my life on the run
i tried to hide from the things in my mind
the night time was cold but the darkness was kind
as i went down, and laid on my side
i closed my eyes and i dreamed that i died

[chorus]
times were hard, they brought me down
at least i can say that i tried
well i ain’t that bad, well i ain’t that good
i just did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by
though it was in infamy
i had my fortune and fame
after i robbed the p-ssenger train
nothin’ was ever the same
my pockets were lined with the silver and gold
but the weight got heavy and i started to fold
i went to the steps of the ol’ town hall
i said here’s all my money, you can have it all

[chorus]
times were hard, they brought me down
at least i can say that i tried
well i ain’t that bad, well i ain’t that good
i just did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by
i did what i did, i did what i did, i did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by. (you know i tried)
i did what i did to get by. (yeah i did)
i did what i did to get by
i did what i did to get by
