Here's the song recorded by The Bellamy Brothers (my transcription).


FAST TRAIN OUT OF TEXAS
(David Bellamy & Jim Stafford)

1. Now Easy was a kid from Amarillo.
He got in lots o' trouble but he never held a grudge.
He spent the afternoons in the pool hall,
Spent his evenin's with the daughter of the judge.

2. It wasn't long, her daddy found 'em
Tryin' to check into a room outside o' town.
Now Easy's leavin' on the four-fifty.
He came a-lookin' for love and this is what he found:

CHORUS: They got a fast train out o' Texas.
They got a airplane that's a-leavin' Frisco too.
They gonna put you on a slow boat to China
'Cause bein' Easy ain't the easiest thing to do.

3. So our hero moved to California,
Takes up with a starlet on the rise.
In a couple of days he'd found her weakness,
And the wool was easy to pull down over her eyes.

4. Just one thing he didn't count on
Was her mama walkin' in at the very worst time.
Now Easy's a-runnin' for the airport
'Cause her mama's got the pòlice on the line. CHORUS

5. One night later two* lay sleepin'.
A jealous woman stood right by his bed
With her finger on the trigger.
Thought she'd blow a hole in Easy's head.

6. Well, she never got the chance to fire her pistol.
She never had the time to shoot her gun,
'Cause the one thing that boy knows is not to sleep on the job
And again this song finds Easy on the run. CHORUS TWICE.


[* I'm not certain about the two words "later two."—JD]
