Oh the evening train is rollin'
All along the homeward way
All my hopes are over the horizon
All my dreams have gone in vain.
The hillside darkly shadin'
Stars fall from above
All the joys of earth are fadin'
The night's untouched, my love.
I'll be here 'til tomorrow
Beneath a shroud of grey
I pretend i'm free of sorrow
My heart is miles away.
The death bells are ringin'
My train is overdue
To your memory i'm clingin'
I can't escape from you.

Well i hear the sound of thunder
Roaring loud and long
Sometimes you've got to wonder
God knows i've done no wrong.
Ah you've wasted all your power
You threw out the Christmas pie
Now you're witherin' like a flower
You'll play the fool and die.
I'm neither sad nor sorry
I'm all dressed up in black
I fought for fame and glory
You tried to break my back.
In the far off sweet forever
The sunshine peeking through
We should have walked together
I can't escape from you.

I cannot grasp the shadows
That gather near the door
Rain fall round my window
I wish i'd seen you more.
The path is ever winding
The stars they never age
The morning light is blindin'
All the world's a stage.
Should be the time of gladness
Happy faces everywhere
The mystery of madness
Is propagatin' in the air.
I don't like the city
Not like some folks do
Isn't it a pity
I can't escape from you.

We ploughed the fields of heaven
Right down to the end
I hope I can be forgiven
If any words of mine offend.
All our days were splendid
They were simple, they were plain
It never should have ended
I should have kissed you in the rain.
I've been thinkin' things all over
All the moments full of grace
The primrose and the clover
Your ever-changing face.
Can't help lookin' at you
You made love with god knows who
Never found a gal to match you
I can't escape from you.  up
