Lyrics

Now listen just a minute while I sing this song
Don't you worry baby it won't take long
I'm just about ready to draw the line
So don't be surprised if I leave this time

Well I'm goin' north and I'm goin' south
Don't want no more of your lyin' mouth
I'm hittin' the road, gonna ring some bells
Better know I can do it well

Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
All night long I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Been losin' all my money and it really is funny, umm badda dum
Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
Al night I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Well tell you what baby, well you better be movin' on

Well I really don't know where I'm goin' for sure
Ain't gotta map, it ain't no tour
Just headin' out to the open sky
Who knows, might even die

Well don't you worry your pretty little head
'Cause you never gave a dang what I did or said
That's why I'm packin' to leave this place
Can't stand to look at your cheatin' face

Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
All night long I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Been losin' all my money and it really is funny, umm badda dum
Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
Al night I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Well tell you what baby, well you better be movin' on

Well you treated me like a little boy
And played around like I was a toy
Guess you thought I'd have the blues
Look whose cryin', guess you lose

Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
All night long I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Been losin' all my money and it really is funny, umm badda dum
Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
Al night I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Well tell you what baby, well you better be movin' on

Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
All night long I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Been losin' all my money and it really is funny, umm badda dum
Midnight train, ramblin' ramblin'
Al night I'm gamblin', gamblin'
Well tell you what baby, well you better be movin' on

It's about that time, better be movin' on
