lyrics

She said “C’mon, boy, let’s hop that train.
The one that rolls behind the apartment.

We could head north and find some new place.
Somewhere that we wouldn’t feel quite so common.

Head up to Carolina then on through Virginia.
Spend some time in New York, but then still sweet Virgninia.”

But I told her “that train moves too quick
for either one of us to ever catch up to it.”

She proved me wrong on the day that she left me.
No name was addressed just the city where she met me.

She said “I swear to God, Atlanta, I’m gonna miss you.
And I’m sorry for the things that you’ll find I stole from you:

Your sunglasses, books, and those old worn out blue jeans.
And the hope that someday you’ll be brave enough to find me.

Just head up to Carolina then on through Virginia.
Spend some time in New York, but then still sweet Virginia.”

She said “C’mon, boy, let’s hop that train.”
