Hello, does anyone out there know anything about this song? I learned it 15 years ago and forgot it and would like to hear it again. If anyone has the lyrics that would be great.
thanks, gm

Might it be the same as the song in the DT called "Life's Railway to Heaven"?

On the other hand, you could be referring to Roger Miller's song by that name.

TRAIN OF LIFE
(Roger Miller)

I sit alone at my table
And watch all the others have fun.
I'm tired of sitting on the sidetrack,
Watching the main line run.
I'm tired of having no future,
Living on things that I've done.
I'm tired of sitting on the sidetrack,
Watching the main line run.

Train, train, oh let me-e-e-e ride.
Don't leave me, train of life, train, train.

I got no one to call me their darling,
To hug me and call me their hon.
I'm tired of sitting on the sidetrack,
Just watching the main line run.
I'm tired of having no future,
Living on things that I've done.
I'm tired of sitting on the sidetrack,
Just watching the main line run.

Train, train, oh let me-e-e-e ride
Don't leave me, train of life, train, train

Train, train

[Recorded by Roger Miller on his LP "Words and Music," 1966.]

Thanks Jim Dixon, that is the song. Now I have to figure out where to find the recording. I don't remeber owning that LP.

It also appears on 2 other Roger Miller collections: "Best of Roger Miller, Vol. 1: Country Tunesmith" 1991, and "King of the Road" box set, 1995. It was also covered by Blue Rose, Terry Eldredge, and Merle Haggard. This information comes from AMG - All Music Guide, which is always a good source for information of this kind.
