Leavin' It All Behind - Songs From An Expat

Leaving' It All Behind

   A philosophical, gospel train song.


There is an old freight train

just a chuggin’ on down the line

ain’t paying nobody no never mind

just leaving it all behind.


I feel like that freight train

just rollin’ on down that track

I fly from the falling rain

never ever lookin’ back


Away from all them liars,

Their fires and their desires,

Away from all those cheaters,

the thieves and deceivers of my soul


And if’n I be that train

I’d not haul they’ heavy freight

nor their toxic crates of heartache

not their boxcars full of hate


I’d roll right out that station,

straight up midnight on the dot.

Their perfidies degradations

‘d be forgiven but not forgot


I am that old freight train

just leavin’ it all behind 

Woo, woo
