Wreckage Along The Railroad (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2008) (song#5477)

I’m just wreckage along the railroad, trash along the tracks
It don’t matter where this old railroad ends
I’ll just keep on riding because there ain’t no turning back
Though I never know what’s around the bend

I’ve met a lot of hobos just as much a wreck as I
Shared a pot of soup and a drink or two
I always tell them, I’ll see you soon, instead of goodbye
Then hop the next freight coming into view

I’ve rolled through many towns, big and small, but I’ve never stayed
I’ve looked at all the places far from home
Oh, please don’t pity me for this wrecked railroad masquerade
I’ll take a rain check on the dreams I’ve known

– instrumental –

I’m just wreckage along the railroad, on the same old tracks
I’ll ride these old rails til she’s forgotten me
I don’t need much money and what I own is on my back
I’ve still got miles to go and lots to see

My poor heart’s been wounded by an old love I couldn’t win
Played my cards for a queen and lost the bet
I’ll have to hide my tears and try to take it on the chin
I’m just wreckage along the railroad of regret
