I got crazy yesterday and I called her to say
Baby, please won’t you come home tonight
I can’t even trust my brain to get my heart in from the rain
And the girl’s a hurricane, all right

Early this morning after she was going
I sat down in a chair all alone
Called my best friend cryin’, asking him why
The girl’s always doing me wrong

He said: when the gates are all down and the lights are all flashing
And the whistle is screaming in vain
And you stay on the tracks, ignoring the facts,
Well you can’t blame the wreck on the train
No you can’t blame the wreck on the train
