Like A Freight Train
written by John Hiatt

Keep an eye on my blind spots
Thereís too many
Keep lookiní for some light
But there isnít any
Was top dead center baby
Now my motorís gone soft
I used to roll through here like a freight train
But my wheels come off

Got the ring my sister gave me
Said it was my momís
The day she died of cancer
I stole her morphine and gone
Oh, I lived like a lion in Nashville
For a couple more years
I used to roll through here like a freight train
But I slipped my gears

I paid a price for everything
You canít play it down
Theyíll kick you off an empty boxcar
And leave you in this town
I only want the best for you
I passed it somewhere along the way
I used to roll through here like a freight train
Baby what can I say?

I had sunshine in my kitchen
Butter on my toast
Coffee brewed up in a loviní cup
In the presence of the Holy Ghost
But I just kept cominí and goiní
You couldnít stop crying
Used to roll through here like a freight train
Mustíve been outta my mind

Donít think you never got to me
Oh, baby you really did
Your love is all I ever think of
Hurts to keep it hid
But Iím not fooliní anybody
Only myself for a while
I used to roll through here like a freight train
I used to make you smile
