Lyrics

Battin-Fowley

Behind the lines back in the good old days
Starlight special, there was no other way
Playing one-eyed jacks when you got on board
My heart did stop, have mercy Lord

Colorado heat was killing me
But when I looked up in the sky
Saw the face of a Texas angel
When I gazed into your eyes

And I'm sorry I never loved you
We were strangers on a train
Someday we'll fall in love
When we pass this way again

Northern luck, I didn't say a thing
With your leather boots and diamond rings
All you need is love so the story goes
But when I saw you move, my body Frooze

And I stood there, wondering about your life
You were a woman of mystery
Were you someone else's wife ?
You sure appeal to me

And I'm sorry I never loved you
We were strangers on a train
Someday we'll fall in love
When we pass this way again

Colorado heat was killing me
But when I looked up in the sky
Saw the face of a Texas angel
When I gazed into your eyes

Sorry, I never loved you
We were strangers on a train
Someday we'll fall in love
When we pass this way again
Someday we'll fall in love
When we pass this way again

Strangers, strangers, strangers on the midnight train
Strangers, strangers, strangers on the midnight train
Strangers, strangers, strangers on the midnight train
...
