about

This is a true story.

lyrics

Johnny, i know why you had to face the train
Johnny, i know why you had to face the train
the whiskey wasn't working to drive away the pain
and there ain't no use in sleeping when you just wake up
again
you could have picked a high bridge you could have picked a gun
the engineer said you saw him but you didn't try to run
now everyone's so sorry and everyone's so sad
but i don't think it hurt you quite as much as what
you had
now Johnny did you think about that railroad engineer?
he's gonna see your eyes in nightmares for the rest of his years
he'll hear the thump and rattle as you went under his train
he'll see his locomotive standing bloody in
that rain
Johnny i know why you had to face the train
Johnny i know
Johnny no
