Same Train, Different Track

the day Merle Haggard died
I found a quiet place to hide
let the songs paint pictures in my mind
of a different place and time
pictures of a broke down oil town
where dust bowl memories abound
prison walls on either side
and a soul so deep and wide

same train, different track
you ride away, you don’t come back
one road to disappear
one song to sing it here
one jukebox for your time
sing me yours I’ll sing you mine
in some honkey tonk saloon
somebody’s always leavin’ soon

we all have songs that we can sing
just like the birds do in the spring
they will help us carry on
life’s hard enough without a song

same train, different track
you ride away, you don’t come back
one road to disappear
one song to sing it here
one jukebox for your time
sing me yours I’ll sing you mine
in some honkey tonk saloon
somebody’s always leavin’ soon

in some honkey tonk saloon
somebody’s always leavin’ too soon
