LAST TRAIN

Bumpers (2017). Lyrics by Dan Zlotnick

Got my guitar standing up in between my knees

Spent all day underground begging people, “Please,

could you float a dollar down into my open case?

Help me get on home tonight and buy another day.”

 

And I’m on the last train heading home

The only way I’ve ever known

And I know I’m not alone

 

Dirty blonde in an apron, tattoo on her wrist

It reads “Randy” but I hear her say, "It’s just me and my kids.”

To the man in the sport coat who slides a ring off his hand

Amazes me how a woman can turn an honest man

 

When they’re on the last train heading home

The only way they’ve ever known

And they know they’re not alone

 

Bearded drifter with a backpack stumbles through the door

Change jingles in his pocket and he’s looking for more

He eyes the man in sport coat and knows it won’t be hard

Slides by, slips his wallet out, and steps off of the car

 

Of the last train heading home

The only way he’s ever known

And he knows he’s not alone

 

A young boy taps his daddy, “I think that man just stole.”

He’s already long gone. “Daddy, where did he go?”

"I don’t know, son, but what’d you think of the game tonight?”

"The greenest grass I’d ever seen, the brightest lights.”

 

And they’re on the last train heading home

The only way they’ll ever know

And they know they’re not alone

 

And we’re on the last train heading home

The only way we’ve ever known

And we know we’re not alone
